Oh! Quick question - did installing the ezmanager software screw up anyone elses computers? I have a HP laptop...
Comment by Rose Joelle on January 27, 2010 at 10:07am
I am frustrated at the moment : P Also a little bummed that the food database cant be on the pump itself. I can barely see the screen on the meter remote and since my insurance wont cover the strips I dont really use it. I wish I could figure out my pump settings and get this right!

Is anyone having a problem inserting the infusion set? I have had three episodes where the needle didn't go in when I used my upper abdomen-I thought the needle went in but then my sugar went up to 500 and it took me 24 hours to come out of it. I am now wearing it in my lower abdomen where I have more tissue? I also have problems just setting up the infusion set-It will eject if I accidently set is down wrong before I inset it?

Keith, you can manually enter BG's by doing an EzBG bolus and not actually giving any insulin - the pump will still save the reading you enter. When you go through the downloaded BG log data later, it will show the source as "Pump" so you'll be able to easily see which were entered manually vs which were transmitted automatically by the meter.

Its been a week and some of the Ping functions are falling into place. Somehow my son changed his basal rate last night - I know it was not intentional and wondered if anyone had that happen by accident or so other way. Also, he has a meter at school to test his blood sugars and the school nurse will send home the time he tested and the results. IS there anyway to enter that info manually into pump or meter so I have an accurate record for charts etc.

I've only been on my pump for 18 days. I had a question about basal. My reg basal is .90/hr. Well about 4-5pm my BG has dropped below 70 3 days in a row. These are days at work. Today I lowered my basal to .75 between 12pm and 5:30pm but still dropped into the 70s got nervous and munched on hard candies. I'm only at 104 now after eating a bag of hard cinamin candies. I did call my endo but she was out. What suggestions do you guys (who wear them) have?
