Here's a question for you all: I just sent my area rep a note because I had some questions. My Ping system came from a Cozmo trade in and I had a few questions about some things.
Anyway, looking around the Animas web site, I find out they not only have local seminars for Animas pumpers (at least I think that is who they are for) but they also have online webinars.
I Have never been informed of anything like that!
And not only that, I'm also not getting supply order reminders even though I checked them off on the online store site.
Are the rest of you receiving notices of this kind?
Makes me feel like I'm a second class citizen because I traded in a Cozmo.
It cost me $200, so you'd think it would include me in the notices etc.
Unless they plain old didnt tell *anyone*.
Do they even still send out newsletters?
Inquiring minds.......

A1c......Ping Pump
I just joined this group, although I've been reading it for a few months. I started on the Ping pump 5/10/10 so I'm still newey. But I just came from my endocinologist and in Feb of 2010 my A1c was 7.2 and now it is 6.4. In all my years (over 30 years) of being a diabetic it has never been below 7. The pump has made a big difference in my life and in taking control of myself. I just had to tell someone who knows what a A1c means. Thank you for listening.

I won’t use Advil either. About 10 years ago, it ate the lining to my stomach and I will never use that stuff again. I wasn’t taking it on an empty stomach nor did I use that much of it.
Comment by Laura S. on July 23, 2010 at 1:17pm
Probably the anti-inflammatory effect?
I know if I have a migraine, the advil works.
And for a toothache, or dental work.
But the extended tylenol does me pretty good for pain maybe a few days a week.
I did read they say Aleve is a better choice, cardiac-wise!
Comment by Amy de la Cruz on July 23, 2010 at 1:10pm
sorry to hear that Laura. When I have had stomach issues with Advil or Aleve, it's usually when I take on an empty, or closely empty stomach, but sounds like you just don't tolerate it very well. Neither Aleve nor Advil though, are drugs for more severe pain. They are given for the same pain scale as Tylenol, at least from a nurse's perspective. (Sorry, I'm a nurse) I just also want to help you find something that may help you!!! Perhaps try taking Aleve (usually lighter on the stomach) with milk, or a meal?

I know if you have arthritis or fibromyalgia, you know all this, but I just wish I had a reasonable option for you that wouldn't cause other problems.
Comment by Laura S. on July 23, 2010 at 1:04pm
Amy, I try to reserve those for really bad pain (dental, etc) because Tylenol isnt quick enough for me. Otherwise those other things do mess with my stomach and blood pressure and make me feel weird.
