David C Weisberg commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users'
"To make things worse, the representative said he would have a supervisor call me to take my complaint about their dangerous and inconsiderate behavior in not calling me to tell me that they cancelled my shipment. No such call ever came. It seems…"

David C Weisberg commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users'
"I have been getting five boxes of infusion sets from Medtronic for each order over the course of many years. When I called them last week to follow up an online order (as I always have to do because they never act on online orders, they told me they…"

David C Weisberg replied to Kj's discussion 'Insurance not covering Contour Next Test Strips' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"Medicare covers the strips, but no one on the approved list sells them by mail order. However, you can buy them over the counter at CVS and Walgreens and certain other drug stores and Medicare will pay."

David C Weisberg replied to swisschocolate's discussion 'Battery problems' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"I have the same problem. I have to change the battery almost once per week. I used to use lithium batteries which lasted months. However, when I got my 530g, they told me to use only alkaline batteries. I don't know why. The only problem with…"

"Christy. I am type 1 and it has made no difference to my weight whether I am on shots or the pump. When I ate too much while on shots, I just gave myself a larger shot to accompany the food. Unfortunately, sometimes I miscalculated and wound up…"

David C Weisberg replied to lisa c's discussion 'Medtronic 530G with sensor' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"I went away this weekend. Changed sensor twice within 24 hours. Calibration errors appeared within hours and sensors were stopped by the pump. Wound up with no sensor at all. I am so disappointed. I thought that the enlite sensors were supposed to…"

David C Weisberg replied to mkampmann's discussion 'Blood Glucose Meter Recommendations????' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"All test strips must be used within a specific temperature range, which usually appears right on the package. Contour test strips must be stored at between 41 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition, all meters themselves, are limited by high and low…"

David C Weisberg replied to Cocheze's discussion 'Closed Loop System' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"I am presently using the new 530g pump with the enlite sensor. The sensor readings vary widely from the finger stick readings, sometimes by more than 100 points. Until such time as the sensors are able to accurately reflect blood glucose, there will…"

David C Weisberg replied to lisa c's discussion 'Medtronic 530G with sensor' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"This morning, after my shower, the sensor went totally bananas, but has settled down four hours later. Generally, I find the enlite sensor not really any more accurate than the sofsensors. However, it is certainly a lot more comfortable and you…"

David C Weisberg commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users'
"Just got my new 530g with enlite sensors. It worked perfectly until I overtaped with a tegaderm square, covering both sensor and transmitter. The results were really off. I have now taken off the tegaderm and following Medtronic instructions, I have…"

David C Weisberg replied to Kj's discussion 'Insurance not covering Contour Next Test Strips' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"My insurance covers test strips as durable medical equipment, rather than pharmaceuticals. The CVS/Caremark listing of drugs does not seem to include any diabetic supplies."

"use aaa batteries with the extra description LR03."

David C Weisberg replied to Kj's discussion 'Insurance not covering Contour Next Test Strips' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"This is strange as Medicare covers my strips and lancets, which I pick up personally at my CVS store."

David C Weisberg replied to David C Weisberg's discussion 'Lithium Batteries' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"Actually, it is the Energizer Lithium Batteries I have been using The last about four times as long as the alkaline max. I have been using them for five years without any problems, except that the low battery alarm does not sound."

M replied to David C Weisberg's discussion 'Lithium Batteries' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"i wouldn't risk it. a damaged or flawed lithium battery can catch fire. i believe they also recommend energizer batteries over duracell, as energizer constructs their batteries with two smaller cells inside the casing. the reasoning is that if…"
