Barry,

Thanks! Doesn't sound like anything then. Been out of town and all deliveries had been stopped or unsuccessful at my house until today. Have a good evening! Mike

Mike, I did get a letter today. They say that under some conditions of power loss the pump might lose date/time. The data records are not affected. The on board capacitor should keep date / time for at least an hour. If date/ time lost two indications one is the date on the pump, the second is a notification on the meter that the date / time is.more than 5 minutes out of sync. Solution is to reset the date/time if needed. The letter indicates that the potential difficulty for low vision users who might miss the alert.

Anyone heard about a letter coming out concerning an issue with the pump resetting date / time to default factory settings when changing the battery? Capacitor issue maybe (or so it has been said in passing)?

Mike Ratrie, I'm getting the basals about right. Waking is generally below 110! Love it!

barryb, glad you are getting a lot out of your Spirit. Are you finding your waking BGs higher or lower than 110?

Comment by barryb on August 3, 2014 at 4:20pm

Almost 30 days on this pump. There is no going back for me. I've tried two different infusion sets, switched batteries in pump and meter all without issue. I've changed basal rates working to get waking BG to 110. So far I can't think of anything I'd change on this system.

How about going to a county fair, enduring 100+ degree temps, much more activity than usual and having the BG remain well in target! Hurrah for pumps! Before, because of a large dawn ph. my Levemir was so high that if I increased activity even a little, I had to eat! Ughh. Not now! I'm a believer!

Got my pump a year ago exactly xx and it has done me wonders that I could never of done on injections x I am so glad I got the chance to get it.

Coming up on my first complete week. What a freedom. I feel so much better, even though I was able to keep a1c at 6.0 on injections, I didn't feel all that well. Now the BG levels are more uniform and I definitely feel better. Love the pump and the fact that I can do everything from the meter without touching the pump.
