"Yes, that's it. it zips and snaps into the case so is very secure and it has a wide "belt loop" on the back to attach it to your clothing so it will not fall off if bumped."

"I use a ACCU-CHEK Insulin Pump Tricot Case and attach it to my bra strap. You could attach to your belt in a similar way. I use my meter to operate my pump and do not touch it all day. There are several options on the ACCU-Chek web site. When you…"

In line at the bank

Today I had lunch with friends and I forgot to give my insulin at the meal. My next stop was the bank. So I'm standing in line to get to the teller window when I remember that I did not give my dose. I just get out my meter and input my carbs and like magic with a few button presses I'm good to go. I usually test first etc. but this worked so great at the time. I'm super pleased with my pump choice. What do you like/dislike about your choice?See More

So glad you have joined us LisaNC. This place has so much to offer. I see that you are T2 taking shots. If you are insulin dependent you might want to visit this group
