Hi Everyone thanks for letting me join. I do not have my pump yet but am in the process hopefully will have it by the beginning of July. excited been way to long on needles.
I have been reading the forums and it seems that the new PDM are colour screened and bright. when I looked on the site and the brochures I see the same thing, big and colourful.
When the rep showed me hers it was monochrome when I asked her why they say coloured screen and it is clearly monochrome she said well it is actually a blue screen so they call it coloured screen. this does not seem right.
so is it coloured or not?
how long to the batteries in the PDM last?
who figures out how much and how often the pump drips insulin? the Endo? or diabetic nurse? etc.....
can I take the used pods to a hazard waste plant in my own city like I do my needles now?
where I am go (4Hours away) for my diabetes it is the RN who refills my prescriptions etc.....
but for the pump the rep has to teach me how to use it since there are very few pump nurses there.
I am in Canada so not sure how different it is from the states and here.
thanks in advance
