Yes - times are a changing. They realize that taking away the pump = not good control of D. Good control of D = great wound healing.

I just had surgery last week, and the hospital let me where my pump, along with my sensors into surgery. They thoguht it would be easier to monitor me. Can you believe that!!!!!

Erika upload the info to carelink and printout every 2 weeks and take them in when you see the doctor, that what I do. Sarah call medtronics and ask for some sure-t's they will send a couple for free to try, I would ask for 6mm.

1 call to Medtronic should give you the "exact" requirement. I've been using 6mm and I use .5 for 6 years now per my CDE.
Thanks Erika.

The doctor should have carelink pro. They can access your records from their office. the carelink site has the info.

Erika,
I just gave my Endo and CDE my Carelink sign in info and they can access all my reports and pick all or which ever one they want to see. Works for me and they are happy too.
Good luck:)

The best way to dispose of the sharps in a an empty detergent bottle. Needles cannot penetrate it by accident. When the container is full, I put it in the trash and it goes to a landfill.
Comment by Helen Doolittle on May 16, 2010 at 9:17am
I put my sharps in a plastic cottage cheese container and then when it is full, I take it to work, which is a Oral Surgery office, and dispose of the sharps in the sharps container!
