Jeff replied to Spock's discussion 'Pump and Airport Security'
"Agree. Travel a lot. Never remove pump while in machines. No problems yet. They are being overly cautious. Jeff"

Jeff replied to Kevin's discussion 'Animas Ping and airport security' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"If you read the blurbs you find that we are not supposed to take the pump through either the metal detector (magnetic Fields) or the newer x-ray systems. When I had the minimed I ignored this and went through the metal detector and never had a…"

Jeff replied to PhDiabetes's discussion 'Animas Change in Loaner Policy for Travel' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Bad things usually happen when companies are purchased by large companies. This is no exception. I would expect the Vibe will probably not appear in the US and a new Roche pump will debut in the 2015 timeframe. Such is life! Jeff"

Jeff replied to momof3's discussion 'Does anyone smell Insulin from their pump?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Nope! Jeff"

Jeff replied to Siri's discussion 'Quick first impression of the Animas Vibe with integrated CGM' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"The vibe screen looks like the older ping screen. Have they done anything to reduce the number of button presses when using it? The ping takes a lot of them. Do you have to re-prime after a battery change? In other words ... have they improved the…"

Jeff replied to PhDiabetes's discussion 'Animas Change in Loaner Policy for Travel' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Interesting. Most businesses drop programs because they are NOT popular. Clearly a money issue for them. It was a good idea to do this but I think they were the only ones doing it. So much for product differentiation! Jeff"

Jeff replied to Erika's discussion 'Anyone switch from minimed?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Everyone is different. I liked the MM very much. Jeff"

Jeff replied to Carl's discussion 'Trouble charging receiver' in the group Dexcom Users
"The mini usb connection is a pain to use. If you are sure that you are inserting it all the way, there is probably something wrong with it and you should consider sending it back! Jeff"

Jeff replied to Erika's discussion 'Anyone switch from minimed?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I am guessing that you are a type-2 because with a pump, I didn't think Lantis is necessary. The Dexcom has been pretty accurate for me so I would go with Medtronic+ Dexcom unless either makes a better combined product. So Dex +…"

Jeff replied to Erika's discussion 'Anyone switch from minimed?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"George- That's not a feature I use or am familiar with; I will look it up. Because I use the Dexcom, I am always aware of bad things happening and in addition to that, I am lucky that I can sense a low even when I am sleeping. But talk about…"

Jeff replied to Erika's discussion 'Anyone switch from minimed?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"In my mind, Medtronic is far friendlier. But I am still on their (MM) mailing list and see quite a few safety warnings going out. Doesn't give me a warm feeling but my next pump will probably be the Medtronic unless the Vibe is a major…"

Jeff replied to Erika's discussion 'Anyone switch from minimed?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"The quality of the ancillary stuff is also pretty bad for Animas. The leather belt holder (male, I guess) is upside down and I can't figure out how to use it. The night belt is very shoddy too. But I don't know if the issues are to be…"

Jeff replied to mtulchin's discussion 'Survey - Is insurance covering your Dexcom device?' in the group Dexcom Users
"No .. it was pretty smooth. I needed a new Rx from my Endo after which it was approved within a few days. I was worried that I would run out of sensors but they told me if it gets too close they (Dex) would just ship me one. It wasn't…"

Jeff replied to mtulchin's discussion 'Survey - Is insurance covering your Dexcom device?' in the group Dexcom Users
"My insurance covers 80% after the deductible. They just changed things this year so I am not sure about a co-pay."
Jul 7, 2013
Jeff replied to Bethany's discussion 'Bad things about the Dexcom?' in the group Dexcom Users
"The biggest issue that I have is the irritation from the adhesive. If you follow the instructions carefully and refrain from recalibrating unless there is a 20% difference, you will get surprisingly good results from it. I found that the…"
