"Ten years back, my son was new to the MM pump and he received frequent no delivery warnings over the first two to three months. He had a tendency to tighten his belt really tight over the coil of pump tubing. Once he started leaving the tubing…"
"I have to agree with Regina. I have had MM pumps for about 10 years and the only times I receive "No delivery" alarms, I have run out of insulin in my reservoir or the infusion set is having an issue, be it that at insertion I bent the…"
"Paradigm 523, almost a year. The only time I got 'No Delivery' is when I'm actually out of insulin. Yeah, I ran it that close a few times. I use the steel cannula; the Sure-T infusion set. If that ever kinks, I'll be having a…"
"Only time that I've gotten them is when the cannula gets kinked being near the muscle. It's happened to me maybe a half dozen times when I use my legs for the site; but, only when I run. It's not often that it happens; though,…"

Hi Graeme! I do not have diabetes; however, I can only imagine that it is a whole new ball game once it is your child with that diagnosis. I too have a type I son. My son is 13 and was diagnosed when he was 10. Cole is also on the Animus Ping. He started it on 3-21-11. How long has your son been pumping? Do you wear a pump?
Thanks for the info. I didn't realize that the measurements would be in US values. There is already enough math without continually converting to mmols's!
You must have read that Animas is planning to integrate their pump with a Dexcom7? I just sent off an e-mail to the Animas rep to ask about an expected release date. I am expecting the answer to be vague, but if he gives me any specific info I will let you know.
I want to tighten my control as well, but may wait on the CMG if the integration is not far off...
I am over inVictoria! Just saw your post about wanting to buy a Dexcom7 through the States. I have been thinking about that myself for the last while. So far, no one can tell me much. Please pass on to me any information you find, I would really appreciate it! Maybe they would give an even better cash price if we each bought one?!
One blog I read had great things to say about the Navigator. Have you looked at that CGM as well?
So you have heard of Giving Tuesday, right? Maybe you have seen the hashtag: #GivingTuesday. If you are like me, confused by all of the messages pointing in different directions floating around social media, you may be wondering, “What is Read on! →
