Overall I am very happy with the Customer Care folks @ Roche. They normally seem to "get it" when I call every 18 months or so, or when I call to re-order supplies and can't remember my customer ID number, but.....

I called the other day because I was low and couldn't figure out how to work the multiclix device. I don't normally use the multiclix, but I was using my back-up meter and it has the multiclix in the case.

While I am trying to work my way through the phone menu system, I finally get a rep who puts me through a battery of questions. I stop her when she asks for the S/N of the meter.

In thinking about this interaction days later, I realize the thing that irked me MOST about the call was this question:

Are you still taking insulin?


Why is this a question?

End of rant - thanks

I don't have a smartphone or iphone. I think I'm just going to use the palm when I need a bolus calculator, and then when I want to make reports for the doc, upload everything with the smartpix. I guess I'm hopelessly in the dark with a lot of technology.

What type of Cell phone do you have. There are quite a few app for the ipone and androde that do the samething as the palm. I found the better as I didn't have to care an extra device with me every were I went.

looking around the internet for some assistance with my Palm and windows 7, here is what is suggested

I guess I'm going to not be using my Palm pilot anymore. this is too difficult. I don't even understand half of what they're talking about.

I just had to get a new computer, it has Windows7 and I'm not sure if the Palm desktop software is compatible. I feel clueless and frustrated. when I hit hotsynch on the Palm, the computer makes a lot of noises but I don't get any error messages.

Marie would you laugh if im saying im overdue for some new technology already? ;)

Comment by Marie B on April 2, 2012 at 2:07pm

I know, it's frustrating. I'm due for a new pump soon.

Still feel as if the FDA is acting like a child who accidentally burned their hand on a stove with trepidation and trying to overtly protect us from ourselves... its stifling a lot of innovation and theres a lot of stuff that should be available in the US that is NOT due to this
