"I'm jealous as that's what I like to do living on a boat, when we retire to Florida during the cold months, but the Admiral won't let that happen. Stay healthy and fair winds."

"Terry I don't think multiple alerts would be a nuisance as you only want alerts when needed. Like the bark or nudge of Norm when you need it. Again I say to the OP use the louder G4 at night (during the day it can be out of range when you leave…"

"Mark sorry for misunderstanding but you said USED to do with my G4 which I assumed was B-4 Vibe time not with Vibe. Sounds like if you have an Iphone that Iseisometer might do the trick. I just keep using my wife she'll notices it before any…"

E-J Ohler replied to MarkR's discussion 'Problems with Animas Vibe's Alarms' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"You mentioned "like I used to do with my G4" I would use the G4 receiver also in conjunction with the Vibe. The both are receivers to the sensor so it is just a question of starting them both. Keep the Vibe on your body and lay the G4…"

E-J Ohler replied to Meg Clark's discussion 'Vibe and Apidra not working well together' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I never heard that Apidra tend to occlude more than any other type of insulin. Are you speaking from experience. I've never pumped Novolog but my experience with occlusions in Apidra, Humalog, Humilin(both U100 and U500) have never been…"

E-J Ohler replied to Meg Clark's discussion 'Vibe and Apidra not working well together' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"If you think that is the problem it might be YOUR pump and not the liquid type you put in it. I mentioned liquid as Apidra, Humalin R, Humalog, Lentus or whatever is being pumped is not known by the pump and all will work. Call Animas immediately…"

E-J Ohler replied to Denise's discussion 'Vibe vs. Ping - any opinions?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Like I said B-4 the great minute control is amajor plus for these Animas pumps like using Apidra and Humilin-R U-500. great you like it and isn't it nice to just have one item on you to control your diabetes."

E-J Ohler replied to Denise's discussion 'Vibe vs. Ping - any opinions?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"MamaLou youi hit the nail on the head. I've been a long time Animas user IR1250. 2020, and the Ping. The only reason I got the Ping was because the 2020 was out of date. I used/use these pumps with Dexcom Seven+ and the G4. I finger prick my…"

E-J Ohler replied to Earl's discussion 'Vibe' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Fred you are right on. The Dexcom receiver on the night stand is a blessing always wakes me up when going or getting low. The vibration of the pump on my body doesn't always does that and I sleep thru low cartridge alarm from the Ping but…"

E-J Ohler replied to MICHOU's discussion 'Lantus' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Roark your final paragraph well said and from my experience well received as mentioned above they love the extra monitoring tools. CGM more so than the pump but you as the pumper know a lot more of how your body reacts then most if not all of the…"

E-J Ohler replied to MICHOU's discussion 'Lantus' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Yes I've done and do legs, arms and love handles in the back as my abdominal is to scared from 45 years of shots, pump, and CGM inserts."

E-J Ohler replied to MICHOU's discussion 'Lantus' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I'm surprised they won't let you stay on your pump. I had several surgeries (one as recent as 6 weeks ago) and every time I kept my pump connected. As a plus to the surgery team I had my CGM too which they felt every diabetic surgery…"

E-J Ohler replied to Gus's discussion 'Does the integrated CGM work under water? Animas Vibe' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Gus I don't have a Vibe yet but I assume it will work as I have often placed my G4 receiver on the pool's edge and still had readings. I swim for exercise too. The same with a hot-tub. The receiver being at least several FEET away.…"
