Bob Bolton replied to Joe White's discussion 'Animas announces receipt of CE Mark approval for Animas Vibe in Europe' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"About a year ago my Animas rep said that they couldn't incorporate two radios into the pump and were removing the wireless meter capabilities in order to enable the Dexcom radio."

"FYI, you don't need the ir dongle to get started. All the setup functions are available on the pump,"

Bob Bolton commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Animas Insulin Pump Users'
"When I received my Ping (September '09) I had to call to get the IR receiver for the pump. At that time, CS told me many folks weren't using the software, so the dongle was sent by request only, It was free."

"You can only set this on the pump, not the meter"

Bob Bolton replied to Keith's discussion 'Combo Bolus' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Keith, On the Ping, you can go to to adjust the maximum bolus limit. Just as an observation, you folks seem to be dealing with awfully large carb loads. The recommendations I've received are to try to stay somewhere near a 75 carb max for each…"

Bob Bolton replied to Keith's discussion 'Timing out on the pump when downloading to EZ Manager' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Hi Keith, When I am connecting my Ping to the PC and starting a download into EzManager Max, I just press the brightness button every 15 sec or so to keep the pump from going to sleep. Once the pump serial number shows up in the download window, it…"

FarmGirl replied to Bob Bolton's discussion 'Ping meter remote accuracy?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"LaLa-I am astounded at this suggestion and I agree with you-for me I drop really low quickly and if the meter is off imagine what I am doing to myself. I have dropped regularly into the 50's which for me is severe shock. I put a lot of trust in…"

LaLa replied to Bob Bolton's discussion 'Ping meter remote accuracy?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I've also noticed variations on the meter itself. Last night, I checked my BG and the meter read 176. Just for kicks, I checked it again using the same finger of the opposite hand, and the result was 199. To me, that's a big difference.…"

Bob Bolton replied to Carrie J's discussion 'Batteries, tape, IV Prep, oh my!' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"My insurance, BCBS, seems to pay (80%) of pretty much anything I order from the Animas store, including batteries, IV Prep, battery caps, etc. Of course that's after I've met my deductable for the year."

Bob Bolton commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Animas Insulin Pump Users'
"Flywilly, I was also concered about the whole sleeping thing, but I just clip the pump to my skiivvies and I'm good to go. I thought rolling over onto the infusion set would be painful, but that's not the case. I have found it ironic that…"

Bob Bolton commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Animas Insulin Pump Users'
"You'll do great, Rose! The pump will be your friend, not you enemy. I started on my Ping in September, and I haven't regretted it once. I have much better bg control, and for me, the biggest benefit is I feel that I have some real control…"

Bob Bolton replied to Spenser Beasley's discussion 'Tubeless??' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"FWIW, I heard from a reliable source that Johnson & Johnson, Animas's parent company, is seriously considering acquisition of either Medingo (Solo pump) or Insulet (OmniPod pump) as their strategy to enter the tubeless pump arena."

Allen replied to Bob Bolton's discussion 'Ping meter remote accuracy?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"A difference of 20% is unfortunately standard for these tests. The trouble is that having two test results gives you no way to know which is correct. It's like the man with two watches; he never knows what time it is."

So, what colour is your PING? We are finally getting them here in Canada (about time) - in the Fall time. I was going to upgrade from my Animas 2020 - but the $900CDN charge doesn't justify the remote - tho' I really like that part of the PING - not having to unclip my pump all the time. So, I'll just wait it out until my pump kicks the bucket - hopefully in a very VERY long time . Stay healthy Bob and out of trouble!
