Re: [IPk] Animas pump



Hi Jane

Thank you so much for confirming what I thought were the good points about 
the pump.  As far as the clip is concerned, I rarely use mine as I find it 
very uncomfortable.  Generally I use pockets. I presume suitable pump 
holders are easily available.  You say you use the 1200.  Is this the newest 
as I thought the number was 1250 but I might be wrong?  One further point. 
I have heard that some pumps are programmable by PC.  Is yours?

June
