"The temp basal alert is only once an hour. I agree that it is annoying during the night. For night I use an alternate basal pattern so that the pump does not beep. During the day I think the temp basal alert is a good thing. I often set it,…"
"Huh, I use the 515 but even the manual for the Revel says "your pump will beep/vibrate three times every hour during delivery." Even if only once per hour, it should be optional. I agree that an alert at the end is good but again, should…"

"Is this something new? My Medtronic alerts to a Temp Basal only once per hour, on the hour. Personally, I wish it would alert when the Temp Basal is OVER, that way I can decide if my labor-intensive work is running longer than expected (as usual)…"
It's very frustrating to say the least. Of course everyone is very helpful, I just got off the phone with a Omnipod rep, she's going to contact BCBShit (ha! I love that) and see what she can do. Don't have a lot of hope. I was told by the DME people it's considered "disposable" but so are insulin pens and they're covered (I think!!) It's because they don't make enough money on the pods. The thing that infuriates me is that they don't cover CGM's!!!!!!!! What the h###ll! If ANYTHING should be covered it should be that. Now that I'm prepared to fight, we'll see how well I fight with "city hall"

Hi and thankyou for your reply.The only problem is that I have been needing to test my nighttime basal and I can't have any active insulin in my body.I believe I already did try a combo bolus and didn't get good results.I'm just going to have to play with it I guess.
