"Even if a warranty runs out your pump will still work. I loved my 2020 and Animas switched to the Ping which I hate I use my Ping pump like the 2020 I just don't use the GM as I have a CGM. So Zoe just keep using your current pump or even if…"
"I used Apidra for years in my Animas 2020 and I had it set for 3 hours also I like Apidra better than all other "fast" acting insulin but I was using a lot and now I'm using the Humalog U-500 which at 5x as strong as standard U-100…"
"As Dave said I too experience the same and after 40 years of MDI and 6 years of pumping still haven't figured out with the help of all professionals how to get a balanced BG. I eat the same BF and lunch every day and my BG's can be all…"
"Melissa I can't remember how I registered but I do know you need a number from your doctors office if it doesn't show in the list. All I know (here in the US) I plug my Seven+ in an USB port on my PC and start Diasend and it automatically…"
"I used EZmanger and agreed with my Dr. office what they wanted to see for reports and then emailed them as for BG meters they down loaded them in the office (as well as the pump) while doing the routine checks (wght. blood pressure, etc) by the time…"
"I've used all three and as show by the answers each body reacts different as some type works better for some people than others. I have to say that Apidra works best for boluses even if you have to combo bolus. I now use a U-500 Humalog and…"
"Dee and Zoe you're right with sometimes wearing it isn't easy accessible all I'm saying the meter can't be read in say like a dimly lit area. Watching Sonia Sotomayor last night on 60 Minutes testing "under" the table…"
"OK so maybe some marketing specialist at J&J reads these comments and can learn from it. Get a Vibe going or let the patient decide how and what to use for their BG monitoring, the 2020 and a good meter was a nice set-up and the Ping didn't…"
"Bram Zoe and Jay said it pretty much but all is dependent on what type of insuline you're going to pump with. As you know you boluses won't change much but your long acting will i.e. your basal. I personally forget the Ping BG and I use my…"
"I had a 2020 that was replaced by a Ping. I still use the Ping as a 2020, i.e. forget about the remote meter. I like my 17 strip canister Accu-Chek where I don't have to deal with the strips. I grab my pump and put in the data I need and/or…"
"I agree with Zoe I think it is your meter that might cause it to cancel. I've had my Animas 2020/Ping (same pump unit) on my belt in open clip (face out) and leather belt pouch and NEVER/EVER had a false button pushed and I'm not a couch…"
"You are correct, but a diligent pumper or MDS'er without CGM will a minimum test 12/day to 15-17/day to keep basal and bolus as tight as possible. With a CGM you are requested 3 to 4/day and I probably do 5-6/day to keep the CGM honest as every…"
"Yes 2nd quarter 2013, 1st half 2014, last year 2012, and so on and some other Animas Rep says 1st quarter 2013. I agree with Jeff let's guess because we can't get a true release date and as long as people are on a pump and do not have a…"
