Robert replied to Kathy's discussion 'Rubber part of Animas PING' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Well I know this post is almost two months old and I have not been here much but I will add that I have been on the animas one touch ping for 7 months and I love it a lot. I have not had any problems with the rubber coming off but as I stated it has…"

Robert replied to Robert Mitchell's discussion 'For the men' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I guess it would be safe to assume Robert that you may be referring to the thigh holder when you state that you will not wear that article. If so be advised that it is not as bad as you may think. I don't like to have my pump exposed too much…"

"I'm with Marti. The bubble will not harm you, except in that it prevents you from receiving the full dose of insulin."

Robert replied to Robert's discussion 'Will the bubbles harm you?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"You know Marti w. I did not think about it that way when you state that you are not getting the dose of insulin when air bubbles are in the tubing. I want to thank you for clearing that up and Have a Great Day!."

Robert replied to Robert's discussion 'If it is better why keep checking?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Hmmm, Thanks for the informative responses people. In closing, I did not state not checking just the amount of checking is what I was referring to. I have checked my sugar three times a day (morning, afternoon & night) for the last month now…"

Tom Gohl replied to Robert's discussion 'If it is better why keep checking?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Robert- Think about it this way. Before you became diabetic, your islet cells did two major things for you. 1) They sensed the glucose concentration in your blood stream continuously, 24/7. 2) When they detected a rise in glucose concentration, they…"

marti w replied to Robert's discussion 'Will the bubbles harm you?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"it's not so much potential harm from the bubbles, but those bubbles mean that you aren't getting the full dose. a unit of insulin is really a teeny amount. say a bubble is a unit's worth of space in your tubing. for me, a unit lowers…"

Jason K replied to Robert's discussion 'If it is better why keep checking?'
"Because you're still diabetic. That's really the bottom line. The pump is a totally imperfect, albeit high-tech, tool. It's not a cure, unfortunately. Until our bodies function properly on their own without intervention, testing is…"

gw replied to Robert's discussion 'If it is better why keep checking?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"you have to check your blood sugar or you will have poor control, not matter what method of insulin delivery you use. also, for me anyway, if i dont check my blood sugar 5-7 times a day, my insurance will not cover it. (i thought it was not…"

Kelly WPA replied to Robert's discussion 'If it is better why keep checking?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"If you don’t check, how do you know if you have a problem with your pump or not? When you did MDI, unless you forgot to take your shot, you usually had some basal working in your system. If your pump dies, you have nothing and it is very easy…"

Robert replied to AaronK's discussion 'Can you recommend a bag/kit for carrying my daughter's Animas Ping and Gear?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Hello everyone, I got my animas ping pump and meter about 2 months ago. I must admit that outside of not liking to be connected and relying on a machine to duplicate what my pancreas no longer does, I was elated to not be taking needles three and…"
