I apologize if you've covered this but ....

Has anyone uploaded the "COMMENTS" from the METER to Diasend successfully? If so, would you mind giving me a hint or two? I am a Windows 8 & 7 user.

Thanks in advance,

Matt, I find that the leaks happen when the inset is not inserted at the proper angle.

Comment by Grant A on November 7, 2013 at 2:50pm

Matt I have been using the one touch ping for 6 months now and I have never had one leak.

Hey everyone !

That's my name for the different blocks of time you set up for different basal rates. Many of us have several different "time zones" where we have different doses to match our basal needs at different times of day and night. It's one of the biggest advantages of the pump.

Thanks Zoe, I plan on taking the manual with me on vacation next week to get in some reading time while waiting for planes, etc. What do you mean when you referenced "time zones?

Comment by Zoe on October 3, 2013 at 2:56pm

Congrats and good luck. Know that there is a significant learning curve and things may not be stable at first. I recommend reading the pump manual page by page and bringing any questions. Also start to think about programming the pump and tweaking doses until you fine tune your basals for the different "time zones".

We just chose the Animas Ping and my 11yr old son will start to pump class on the 22nd of this month. We are really looking forward to the freedom of not having to constantly inject him at every meal. He chose the green pump!
