A message from the folks at Tandem regarding T:slim and Apidra

Hey T:Slimmers,

The fine folks at Tandem noticed some of the discussion in this group and sent me the following statement to share with you all:

"The t:slim Pump is indicated for use with Novolog and Humalog, but we have no reason to believe that there is anything in the t:slim's pumping mechanism that could contribute to a higher incidence of occlusions using Apidra. There are distinct labeling differences between rapid-acting insulins and their use in pumps, particularly as it relates to how frequently the reservoir should be changed. These are things you should discuss with your physician as part of your decision process."
