Does anyone know how to check the settings in a 670g to actually view the last time you did a full set change? For some odd reason it seems as if the set change reminder is a little off within this pump or maybe I simply dismiss the notification? I could certainly assume I would do this in the middle of the night.
I have a 670G; however, I don’t understand the term set change. Are you talking about the sensor or the reservoir?
Go to Status, pump , you get the last reservoir change date. The pump assumes that the reservoir and set change together.
Note: I am a Medtronic ambassador. My opinions are my own. They did not pay me to say nice things about Medtronic devices or the company. OK, they sent me a shirt and a cup but even I am more expensive than that.
It’s actually in Options, Reminders, Set Change.
Ahhh thanks @Rphil2, that’s unfortunate because I’m constantly changing the reservoir due to bubbles forming in the tubing.
Note*I switched from Medtronic to an Omnipod years ago because of this and have probably tried every suggestion known to man to remove them from countless Medtronic Reps.
Are you sure they are bubbles? I used to think that same thing with the tubing and was constantly changing just like you when a friend of mine, who is also a diabetic, pointed out that they were just “stretch marks” in the tubing. If you run your fingers over them you can actually feel the difference in the tubing.
I guess i have never had this issue. I suggest two things. Hold the reservoir up when pushing the initial insulin the tubing. Then if bubble form disconnect at the site and use prime to push it forward again.
I so seldom have this issue, I am surprised you rise the issue. Maybe I need to look closer.
That’s incredible and I’ve never heard of that. I’ll test this the next time I see the kinks… I can pretty much tell if it’s in the morning and I can run the bubble right out the end of the line as there is an obvious delay in the insulin flow.
The wild thing is @Rphil2 is some Medtronic users never have issues at all. I wish they could take the bubble problem children and non bubble problem children and put us in a test lab to do a comparison study. HA
Ahh that would just mean half of us would have difficulty and the other half would be fine. Or, wait, isn’t that we have now? LOL
