"I think ??? comes out not only when the receiver looses signal, but anytime the system doesn't feel "sure" of what the right number to show you is. If according to its last calibration it senses you are at 200 and you give a new…"

"Which meter you use to calibrate ? It's important it is precise, if not accurate. Its error has to be "stable" not once plus and the other minus otherwise the sensor gets broken references. Read diabetesmine about a CGM - meter…"

garidan replied to BennyL's discussion 'Pod Occlusion' in the group OmniPod Users
"Do you use the back of your arms ? Or lower legs ? Test unusual sites. Apidra is viscous as well, for it or temperature issues people usually change the pod after 2 days, not 3: do you have occlusions on the third day ?"

garidan replied to Jen's discussion 'No delivery with metal sets'
"I have no esperience about that, but by what you say it sounds like your set is too short and insulin stack up and stays under your skin when it happens. So it would be a site location and not a set problem. What set and what length do you use ?"

garidan replied to Terry's discussion 'A low-carb discussion without the emotional noise ***Update*** with video link'
"I read it this way: don't look at you diet only as a diabetic (which is only focused on his BG and carbs). Look at your diet as (if) you were a person with heart disease. That's your main risk and to mitigate it you have to lower bad fats…"

john replied to garidan's discussion 'Medtronic sues Insulet' in the group OmniPod Users
"What was curious to me about the whole patent issue was the date of the actual patent and the date that Insulet started creation of the omnipod. It appears that the patent was granted AFTER Insulet started the whole project, but as usual, the US…"
