[IPk] Pump latest and thankyou



Hi
Thanks to those who replied to my mail 'back-again' yesterday! It helps so 
much to have first-hand experiences! 
Had my appt with the diabetes clinic today. Upshot is, they've had problems 
with Disetronic lately. (Another lady, the only other pump user in this area, 
has used Disetronic but has had a run of problems, bad service, pump 
 malfunction, supplies problems, plus the PCT have not been able to get the reps
to
 visit, etc, etc). The cons said it used to be OK with this firm, but just
lately
seems to have gone downhill. So now, the team and the DSN's are meeting with 
 Minimed on the 13th October to choose a pump, etc. Apparently there are going
to
be two of us going onto pumping at the same time, plus the exisiting user who 
will transfer to Minimed as she is so unhappy with Disetronic. I asked if I 
could go along and choose a pump(!) but no, it was just for the health 
 professionals. Then the DSN is going to contact me as soon as the goods come
through,
basically. Sorry to be a bit slow here, (I have been off list for a while) but 
has anyone else had problems with Disetronic? It all sounds a bit ominous!
Other things happened in this visit...another mail about that follows!
