"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…"

"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
"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…"

"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.…"

E-J Ohler replied to Earl's discussion 'Vibe' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Ron and Granny yes the separate G4 receiver is fine until you walk/work in the rain or fall in the water. The G4 receiver is not waterproof. The 2020/Ping/Vibe is/are therefore a Vibe would be a great option as you only have one item to carry and it…"

"No different than with your G4 supplies, you still need sensors the only difference is that you now have pump and receiver in one waterproof unit."

E-J Ohler replied to Siri's discussion 'Quick first impression of the Animas Vibe with integrated CGM' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Yes separate sensor. Also Amy the whole pump/receiver (Vibe) will be water proof as the current G4 receiver is not. (don't ask me how I know)"

"I've been an Animas customer for over 12 years without ever having a customer service problem. Maybe it is a question of learning to communicate by voice instead of email/texting."
