"OK- so how do we lobby Medicare? Letter writing? to whom? Sign a petition? What is the most efficient action we can take?"

"Penny, the Apidra degrading in the pump was a big problem for me. I seemed to have more problems when the weather was warmer. At least with a tubed pump, it is easier to just change the cartridge and not lose everything like you do with the Pod."

I switched from Apidra to Novolog!

I started using Apridra in January, hoping to have a faster post-meal "kick-in" time with this insulin. I struggled for 6 months with Apidra, finding that it worked OK the first two days in the Minimed Paradigm 523 pump but lost its effectiveness beginning on the 3rd day (but that took months to figure out it was the insulin and not me or the pump). I switched to Novolog. Yippee- it has lasted into the 4th day (haven't tried any longer). I notice the lowering of my glucose begins within 30…See More

"I just switched from Apidra with its short shelf life in the insulin pump reservoir (only 2-2.5 days) to Novolog. Big improvement!"
