I usually leave my PDM in the living room when I go to bed at night…so the answer is that you do not need the PDM near you to dose the basil. Also, when I bolus, after I push the button I will get up and walk away leaving the PDM on the table. The only time you need the PDM on you is when you first start the bolus, Hope that helps.
Hi Jon. So if you leave the PDM in the other room at night, you must not have a basal rate change programed to occur in the middle of the night. I’m assuming if you did need a nighttime change, you would need to keep the PDM close, for example, to adjust for “dawn phenomenon”. Does this sound accurate?
Right Katie. And Moonsynth, I do have a basal change at 3am…preparing for the dawn P…and yes…the PDM is still in the living room. That’s another plus for tubeless.
Wow, ok… that’s great. I was thinking only one basal rate would be known by the Pod. Thanks for clearing it up for me!
