Re: [IPk] Animas pump
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?
