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…"

Tony replied to Kevin's discussion 'Animas Ping and airport security' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I just tell TSA at body scanner/ metal detector that I've got a pump and opt to defer and get pat-down.... Takes a few extra minutes but usually no big deal ( most of the time very friendly and understanding ) ... On occasion get a " know…"

Orpy replied to Kevin's discussion 'Animas Ping and airport security' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Can someone tell me what machines my ping is safe to go through? Every time I take it off the airport security act like it's ok to walk through the gate detector but I am afraid to. I know it can't be exposed to x-rays but what about that…"

"Sorry to hear this Melissa. I've been on my tslim for 4 months and so much happier with it compared to the Animas Ping."

Kevin commented on Jigga's group 'Tandem T:Slim Users'
"Thanks. I had a similar experience to yours Linda when I switched to the Animas Ping. Since I had a Minimed, I just programmed it in a similar manner. A week later someone called to schedule training and I mentioned I'm already using it. I…"

Kevin commented on Jigga's group 'Tandem T:Slim Users'
"For people who were on another pump before switching to the t:slim, did you bother with "training" before using it? It's so easy to set up with settings from my old pump that it seems pointless to deal with training."

Hello-
We started a new Pennsylvania specific group (http://tudiabetes.com/group/pennsylvaniadiabetics)

And- I was thinking that eventually we should have a philly meet up for all us at TuD.
Maybe Bowling for Blood Sugars? Get together, socialize, test, and try to see who can most closely match blood sugar value with bowling score. Winner gets... something to be determined.

Happy Wednesday, guys- I hope your sugars behave today.

Hey Kevin! How are you? Are you doing The Walk for the Cure in Phila. on Oct. 25th? Would be nice to get a group together!

What about the actual sensor. Like on your abdomen or leg?? Any problems with it sticking to you?

Hi kevin, thanks for adding me. I was wondering where you have found is the best place to put your dexcom sensor? Especially while riding.

Yeah I spoke to Animas today and it's just something I guess I'll ahve to get used to. I don't care too much for the single reports. I like them to be together to see bolus and basal and numbers all in one wash. Guess I'll have to logg afterall.

Hi Kevin... question for you. I started on the Ping today on my own. Can you not recall BGs off your pump? Only off the meter and do you have to download them both? Also if you do not want to put the food data base on the pump can you still use it off the meter? I have to sit down with the books more but my eyesight isn't good. :o( That is why you should wait on formal training huh. ha ha ha Been pumping over 15yrs now though so I just thought I'd hook up anyway. Thanks Sandy

Hi Kevin. I actually don't live in columbia, but when I signed up, it required my zip code. I do live about 60 miles from there, but I figured no one would have ever heard of my little town.
Great a1c!!

Ah, ok. I'm also working in pharma in RTP (although I do biostatistics and at a different company). And yeah, the weather here is not so bad. It may snow tonight, but was in the 60's yesterday and should be in the 60's again by this weekend. :)
