I'm 22-years-old and have been Type 1 since December 31st 1988, for 21 years! However, this is my first time ever having an insulin pump (523 Revel) which I recieved in the mail today. I was just curios and wanted to know if anyone has used the insulin from their insulin pen in their minimed insulin pump? I have a bunch of pens and I dont want them to go to waist!
I just started on an insulin pump on Monday (523 Revel as well) and my hospital stopped carrying Novolog earlier this year (instead switching to Humalog).
Because my nurse didn't want yet another new parameter (there are already enough when starting a new pump and stopping Lantus injections) I brought my Novolog pen and she filled my reservoir with it!
I've been using (and loving :-) my new pump since Monday with it without any problems.
Although tomorrow I have to do my first insertion site change and I'll have to decide if I want to try my luck with the Novolog pen extraction as well (on my own) or if I should try out the Humalog vial already.
