dtessler replied to jakesmom427's discussion 'Novopen Jr' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My daughter used the Jr. pen for a couple of years before she started pumping. We liked it quite a bit. Doses were accurate and easy to dial up, even for aging eyes. Also you can do 1/2 units pretty easily. We didn't have problems with air…"

dtessler replied to marnie's discussion 'Insulin Pens' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"As I understand it - Lantus pens don't dose in 1/2 units (I always get corrected on here though so some other parent may have different information.) I'm almost certain Novolog junior pens can dose down to .5"

"My daughter had the same experience when she first started pumping. She has the Ping and there's a 'slow' setting under the bolus menu, or somewhere in the set up, that allows the insulin to be delivered more slowly. She also uses…"

dtessler replied to Zoe's discussion 'Ping Pump Battery Life ....Eight Days!!??' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"This is all so interesting - My daughter's battery never lasts more than 2 weeks. However, given what you all have said so far I can see why that might be. She uses combo bolus' all the time. She definately uses the vibrate rather than an…"
