Am I hearing something?


#1

I’ve been using the Minimed 522 & sensor since April. Lately during the day, I miss hearing alerts the pump gives. At night, alerts wake me without a problem. The buzzing is especially effective when the pump is directly above my pelvic bone.

Back to during the day… a co-worker (with a type 1 diabetic spouse) has told me a few times that the pump was alerting me and I missed. I’m not sure of a solution to this problem yet. Perhaps I should call Minimed again, or even read the manual for the answer.

How about trying the vibrate function during the day.or change your alarm to Beep Long

I also have trouble hearing the beep while at work , my co worker usually hears it . I have change mine to vibrate and all is well . … although my cat hates it vibrating on the bed at night she has quit sleeping right up against me I think she is afraid of it .

Believe it or not, my cat will sleep right on my pump and not even notice when it vibrates. How strange!
