So i was told by the pump rep i need to talk to and possibly see a diabetes educator about my pump here ill post what i sent her and her answer…
hi tonya i was just curious do you think i will be able to do the pump on my own without any help?? im pretty sure its quite similar to medtronics and would save me alot of waiting time and ill be on vacation in 2 days so that would be the best time to go ahead and get started on it all i really need to figure out is my basal which i have friends who are pumpers and they told me they decided to do it on their own because they were able to predict it alot better then the doctors it just took them a little trial and error… thanks
and her reply
That is a very good question and what I can tell you is that we do not advise any patient to hook themselves up to the pump without the proper education. I am copying my clinical manager on this email. It is best to communicate with her directly on this.
my question is i seem to be educated because i had a pump before and though they are different they are alot similar too so why would it be a problem??
