"All I want to say to you, my friend, is don't lose perspective. Test more often so if you crash you can catch it. As for tomorrow: GO! Don't ruin your time spent with family/friends because of the damn D gremlin - else it wins. You can…"

I got my ping in January 2011 and so I will be out of warranty this coming January and due for a new Ping. However.....I started Medicare last November (I have Medicare plus my old insurance Anthem-full coverage). I have read on here about Medicare only allowing new pumps every 5 years so I was wondering which rule I came under.I just got off the…See More

Pumps and Medicare

Hi allI just got some good news I wanted to share (I'll also put this in the Animas group). I got my ping in January 2011 and so I will be out of warranty this coming January and due for a new Ping. However.....I started Medicare last November (I have Medicare plus my old insurance Anthem-full coverage). I have read on here about Medicare only allowing new pumps every 5 years so I was wondering which rule I came under.I just got off the phone with Animas sales. They said that because I bought…See More

"Welcome to the forum, Dazed! A couple thoughts.I'm assuming you're only taking Lantus so far? Since you are going low in the morning you might try splitting your Lantus dose, half in the morning and half in the evening. Lantus is supposed…"

Zoe replied to Adele's discussion 'Is it worth buying an insulin pump???'
"Most people on shots take three fast acting insulin shots for their meals,(called bolus) 1 or 2 long acting for background insulin (called basal) and perhaps more for corrections when high.(also bolus). When you are new to D you sometimes only need…"

Zoe replied to Adele's discussion 'Is it worth buying an insulin pump???'
"No, you won't save money, Dell. You still have to buy insulin (in vials) and you need to get regular supplies of infusion sets and cartridges. Going on a pump isn't a way to save money. But it does do two major things: Help us better…"

Hi Zoe I was just reading some of the posts online about EZ ManagerMax.My Ezmanager max3.06 does not work my custom composer.When I hit the play button the tune doesnot play.I called Animas and they told me they would send the 3.07 version.What is the difference between the two.I just hope the 3.07 version works better.

Hi ,

You may have noticed TuD hanging around the site. It's his 6th birthday this month, and his big international family of people with diabetes is growing. Our 6th birthday fundraising campaign is on! Every dollar you donate allows TuDiabetes to reach 6 people touched by diabetes, giving them the opportunity to not be alone!

Please consider making a donation, as well as asking your friends and family to give what they can. TuD's birthday party will keep getting more guests as we raise more donations (see top of the home page). Let's help keep our family thriving and growing! Please share this message. Thanks!

Zoe, My comment was not directed at you; if I didn't make that clear, please let me say it now and remove all doubt. I do have to say, however, that I think you are wasting your energy trying to reason with someone who won't be reasoned with, and who simply will not hear what you say. You're attempting to move an immovable object.

Best,
David
