Craig C commented on Marcelo Bellon Ferreira's group 'Roche Accu-Chek Users'
"I guess I don't try to over think it. The only time my pump is off is in the shower and getting dressed. My infusion set is always attached somewhere a little below my navel and varies from the left to right and back again. I use the 81cm ones.…"

Craig C replied to Wanderingbookworm's discussion 'Buying wearable accessories for the Spirit Combo' in the group Roche Accu-Chek Users
"It's hard to find but they have various accessories on the Accu-Check pump web site. Do a Goggle search and you should be able to find the pages. Their pump & accessory sites are not very user friendly."

Craig C replied to CookinsForMe's discussion 'Tomorrow I switch from the Spirit to the Combo and....' in the group Roche Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump Users
"Congratulations Denise! I received my Combo last November and love it. It's essentially the same device as the Spirit so there's no reason to worry about the change. In fact, I rarely have to mess with the pump itself except to change…"

Craig C commented on Marcelo Bellon Ferreira's group 'Roche Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump Users'
"I've had the same problem when I'm around a lot of metal or electric appliances. Fluorescent lights could also be an issue as I know they affect cellular signals too. I've learned not to be standing by the refrigerator and stove when…"

Craig C commented on Marcelo Bellon Ferreira's group 'Roche Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump Users'
"Once I use up the supply of alkaline cells that came with the Combo I'll switch to lithiums. Abby - do you order your batteries from Accu-Chek Supplies? I never have; I just get them at the store. I'm kind of partial to the Duracell Ultra…"

Craig C commented on Marcelo Bellon Ferreira's group 'Roche Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump Users'
"I seem to get about a month and a half of battery life in the meter itself and about a month or so on the pump. All in all though I really like the new system."

Craig C commented on Marcelo Bellon Ferreira's group 'Roche Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump Users'
"Abby - They can be ordered from Roche via the Accu-Chek site but I'll bet you could order one from the supply number the same as your normal supplies."

Craig C commented on Marcelo Bellon Ferreira's group 'Roche Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump Users'
"Hi Mr. Ratrie - I rarely do anything with the pump itself other than shut it down when I shower. In fact, since I normally wear jeans or slacks I store the pump in one of my socks and run the infusion set tubing up to my abdomen. Kind of 'out…"

Craig C commented on Marcelo Bellon Ferreira's group 'Roche Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump Users'
"Well, got my Combo and thoroughly love it. My only real issue is there's no way to store favorite meals out for carb usage like with the Palm. Fortunately I wrote down all my favorites and I'll place a card in the meter case with that…"

Craig C commented on Marcelo Bellon Ferreira's group 'Roche Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump Users'
"From what I can gather, something called Bolus Advice replaces the Compass software. Not positive though. I was supposed to have my training last Wednesday but my trainer ended up in the emergency room Tuesday afternoon. Haven't been able to…"

Craig C commented on Marcelo Bellon Ferreira's group 'Roche Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump Users'
"I just received my letter and went online to register. During the process I was informed that my doctor prefers to do the training in their office instead of sending me to a large class. Maybe that's an option as well for those who don't…"

"Concerning the Spirit Combo upgrade ... I was told, by my Roche rep, that Roche would be mailing out letters to those eligible for the free upgrade sometime in October which is basically half gone. So, hopefully we'll hear something soon."
