Joey replied to Kate's discussion 'Test Strip Recall' in the group OmniPod Users
"I was told by the Abbott rep I spoke to that only strips with an expiration date of August 2015 and later are acceptable. Can you make sure you get only the "good" expiration date strips from the pharmacy?"

"I don't live in NB but I am sure there are no free Medtronic pumps available there! If there were can you imagine all the people moving to your beautiful province? I think you should contact Medtronic directly for answers to your questions."

Joey replied to meh_mtl's discussion 'OH Canada, I got my letter' in the group OmniPod Users
"I don't understand. Didn't they send a CD of the CoPilot software with every new kit? If not, that doesn't make much sense. We got it with our new kit last week. And as for the Diasend issue, we have to wait. My nurse educator really…"

Joey replied to meh_mtl's discussion 'OH Canada, I got my letter' in the group OmniPod Users
