"Beware of rolling over on a glass cup. I did that once while asleep. The results were less than stellar.
I, too, am interested in ways to make the alarm sounds louder. I'm a heavy sleeper, and I've been used to the loud alarms of the…"
"I have United Healthcare. For my Dexcom, I needed to get it from either EdgePark or Diabetes Specialty Center - which is now owned by Byram. I had a bad experience with Edgepark - so thought I would try DSC/Byrum. I can get my pup supplies directly…"
"I thought the remote would be great, but after the first few months, I put it in a drawer and haven't used it since.

Frankly, I'm not sure what I'd if I was…"
"This is a total hijack, Alan Funt! My favorite Candid Camera thing was when they posted signs on the New Jersey that said "Due to lack of interest, New Jersey is Closed until further notice". People actually turned their cars around and…"
"All I can think of that it may be an insurance issue. Perhaps your healthcare plan used to deal direct with Animas and so you could order directly form Animas, Now your healthplan deals with a third party supplier and (of course) didn't notify…"
"Seeing as how NicholeW28 got her supplies, I went ahead and called Animas back. This rep says he has no idea why they would say that they don't deliver to Texas, and that they are just still waiting on insurance authorization.
