Well now we being the steep learning curve of the pump. Yes I am sure its easier than the shots and it does sound way better, but man there is a lot to remember. We will go to the dr. in decemeber to learn how to use it. DD is wanting to go now. However i have no sick leave left at work and can’t afford to take off of work to learn how to use the pump. Yes I know it is her that is going to be using it, but I need to know how to use it as well. I will be still checking before i go to bed and will need to be able to make adjustments as well.
She did get a new meter w/the pump that will beam her BG number to the pump for ease of use. I have read some of the book - got through some of the warning, like the cell phone. Tell me how people who use handle this or even just? does it really interferer with their pump? She say’s its no big deal cause she keeps her phone in her back pack but what about the days she is at home and has her phone in her pocket? just make sure its in the other pocket? I have so many questions, I am sure that some of them will be answered during the training and reading the book.
Is there any real life things that we need to know? I am coming to my friends here because I know you guys use this product and can give me the real life information.
her pump is the meditronic minimed pardigram 722.
thanks to all of you for being here for us. Sorry for our long absence but we are both back and ready to get back to business and live.
