I was donated a Minimed Paradigm 715
it came with 80 quicksets (not lot 8)
and many reservoirs. I hope to obtain an rx from my doc for the pump and supplies.
who is not type1 diabetes experienced, and never really sees me or more than 8 mintues (Max), only sees my blood work and says whatever your doing, keep doing... all looks good, my last A1C was 6.5. I am on MDI (Humalog and Lantus) got my Basal pretty dialed in and bolus landings are descent.
I am wearing the pump but not infusing any insulin nor installed the quickset, just stick it on, to get used to wearing and having on 24/7.
wow, after 25years of Injections, wearing a pump is different.
So the doc to RX the pump and supplies, I contacted my pharmacist who is much more knowledgeable than my doc. to find out monthly cost of supplies after the 8 months of the ones donated provided run out.
I also contacted Minimed to transfer ownership and maybe utilize any warranty or support.
I have dived in heavy into the education process to become an expert on this pumps operation.
What I seek here is asking the TRUE experts here to look at my situation and advise according to your experience. anything to add is much appreciated.
The pump needs to be reset and is asking to rewind and prime. I cant access the main menu, for utilities and to clear user settings.
