"What is your Bolus Increment? My guess is, if it is set to 0.10, and you were trying to temp increase it by .05 as a result of the calculation, perhaps it's calculated value is less than your minimum bolus increment. Perhaps try to change your…"
"Ok, so this may sound really dumb, but I've been saying this for years and the Dr's think I'm nuts. It does happen to me on a fairly regular basis. It's almost like I'm on some kind of a cycle. I will go three weeks or so…"
"Lol, good for you Christine. Glad you gave it a try. Since I never used that spot for MDI, I find it's quite a consistent area as well for absorption - nothing but(t) good using that spot (sorry, bad pun)."
"Nope, it is actually just out of the way, driving is not an issue at all. Mine is usually just off to the right or left towards my side a little bit. You do need to be a bit careful going into the car seat, just so you don't put weight on it…"
"I've been through U.S. and Cdn airports with no trouble, I mention I'm wearing a pump and they usually don't even want to see it. Did ask New to go through the full body scanner one, no problems. Pdm goes through xray a, I put it…"
"I'm thin as well and use all of the spots recommended by Insulet with a high degree of success. TmoeZ's suggestion is a particularly good one for me as I never injected much there when on MDI. Arms are still the fave though, the pod just…"

"Not sure exactly what you mean by come with a website. I just use it stand alone, ie, download the results, check out the reports, email it to the doc if he wants it, etc. I don't download anything to a website for anyone else to check…"
"Ok, so I've launched my first new pod. All I can say so far, is Wow. I can't believe how much smaller and lighter it actually is. Definitely feels like there is nothing attached any more. Kind of strange, and no flopping around like the…"
"So, I just got my new kit and first set of mini-pods - wahoo! We'll be sticking the first one of them on tonight. What I'm super happy about though is, included in the box, is the new version of the Copilot software. I will be loading that…"
Thank you all for the wishes. It's hard to imagine another year has gone by so quickly, and as the numbers grow higher, so does the speed at which birthdays seem to arrive. I appreciate the kind words. Rob
