Re: [IPk] Animas pump



Thanks Celeste for your reply.  What is it about the light you like?  You 
mention there is no escape button and there isn't on the one I already use. 
In order to escape, I just abandon what I was doing and it returns to 
default mode.  Is this the same?

How clear do you find the writing on the screen?  How good have you found it 
inserting your food and it working out your bolus?  I presume you are new to 
a pump.  If so I can't ask you whether it helps to avoid you going hypo by 
knowing more about the insulin on board.  Do you use any miniscule or finely 
set basels using the 0.025 feature?  How difficult do you find the canulas 
to insert?  Have you had any difficulties with it.

Sorry for all the questions but I do not know anyone who uses one.

June
