"Laura, my daughter is untethered so she gets Lantus daily. Moving from strictly doing basal through the pump to Lantus I would say err on the side of caution and reduce the Lantus by about 25% until you see how you "react." You can always…"

"I recommend that you contact the american diabetes association or jdrf, they usually can help. Or contact children with diabetes, they can probably help. If I hear of any thing I'll let you know. Keep in contact with me."

"Barb - I have an Animas 1250 that I don't need anymore. I replaced it under warranty right before I got my new pump so it's brand new. Email me at jenndsc@gmail.com and we'll talk about the details. :) Jennifer"

Looking for an Animas Pump

Hi, all. I'm mom to 10-year old Alexandra, a T1 diagnosed about 3 years ago. We live in Ghana, W. Africa. Some of you might know me from the CWD forums.Well, Alex uses an Animas 1250 pump, donated by a mom whose child was dx with T1 but it turned out it was monogenic D so he didn't need the pump. She gave it to Alex. Other CWD parents donated cartridges and insets and I've got enough to last for at least 2-3 years. The pump, on the other hand, is a concern, with a crack in the battery housing…See More

"Thanks everyone. I think I am going to decline the MM at this time. If one person has an MM pump sitting inside a drawer, someone with an old Animas or a Cozmo will also. :) I've got too much donated stuff to let it go to waste. Money is too…"

Jan replied to Barbara Zigah's discussion 'Is the Minimed 511 compatible with Animas sets?'
"If the pump is donated does that mean it cannot be under warranty? If under warranty, Animas will replace it. If not under warranty 50/Fifty online pharmacy, does sell something that will help convert the Minimed pump so it uses the luer lock. That…"

"But, you can buy special reservoirs/cartridges that fit in the Minimed & have a luer connection. I don't know more but I am sure they have been discussed more fully on other parts of TuDiabetes."

Kari replied to Barbara Zigah's discussion 'Is the Minimed 511 compatible with Animas sets?'
"No, Animas uses something called a Luer Lock to connect the tubing to the cartridge. Minimed uses their own unique design. They aren't interchangable."

Is the Minimed 511 compatible with Animas sets?

Does anyone know for certain whether the Animas infusion sets will work with a Minimed, model 511 (maybe a Paradigm?). Someone is offering me her old, gently used MM and I'd love to take her up on it but only if I know that I can use the infusion sets we've got (since we've got a like a gazillion sets -- insets, comforts, comfort shorts, contact detach).My daughter currently uses a donated Animas 1250, but its got a crack at the battery housing which I'm keeping together with crazy glue and a…See More
