"You should really consider Accu-Chek Spirit Combo- pump, too. It is available in Canada and Europe, but not yet in the US, so it does not get much reviews on Tudiabetes. It has capacity of 315 units and an excellent full remote/bs meter. Animas Ping…"

JKD1 replied to Mike S.'s discussion 'Are You Lancet Lazy?'
"It is quite a hassle to change lancets at school/work. That's the reason I have replaced all my lancet devices (Softclix and so on, I got 3-4) with Accu-Chek Multiclix lancet devices. https://www.accu-chek.com/us/lancing-devices/multiclix.html"

"Every 3 months is recommended. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10575934&findingMethod=rr $9 for a lab test, much cheaper than a test taken by a doctor."

"Jake, you are right, it is not valid in MA. I can't get it either because I have a Medicare plan - my plan pays more than most plans do but I get screwed too."

"So wow. My son uses Apidra in pump. First reading this I thought that it doesnt concern us as vials are not affected. Then later I realised they dont sell vials for pump-users in Finland, only cartridges."

JKD1 replied to Natalie ._c-'s discussion 'What is Type 1?'
"Type 1 is not called juvenile diabetes anymore in Finland. And why would it: 2-3 times more people get classic Type 1 as adults (usually under the age of 40, but one can get it at any age) than as children."

Thanks for the link. Unfortuanately the website is blocked my my firewall at work. I will have to look at it when I get home. What are you studying in school? You seem to have quite a scientific or mathematical mind by some of your posts.
