The t:slim has some very nice bits of info that I wasn't used to having access to with my Ping, and I've been using them liberally. For example:
|Touching the top right corner of my homescreen (where it shows how much|
insulin is left in the cartridge) brings you to just about all the information
you'd want to know about what your insulin pump is doing right that minute.
|In the History menu you can see a visual breakdown of your insulin|
use that day (they call it a "delivery summary"), or an average over the
past 7, 14, or 30 days.
|If you can't remember when you did the last cartridge fill (hi, me, I do this|
all the time), your pump remembers for you.
|Struggling to recall all of the BGs you entered today? Dude's all over it.|
|Or maybe you want to see everything your pump did today - |
Complete History it is.
Tomorrow is my first visit with my endocrinologist after starting on the t:slim - let's see if she's as pleased with the availability of some of my data as I am.
P.S. Things have been kinda quiet over here because I've been having fun posting over here instead.
In my daydreams about "when I need a pump..." I've been thinking I'll go for that Snappy one when I read Melissa, for the Omnipod when I read Katie, and now this. TSlim is gorgeous. Also it has the cache of being affiliated with the Bionic P. The only pump I'm sure I won't want is a Ping, but only because I am sick of looking at its horrible font.ReplyDelete
You know how people usually conclude something bland like "different pumps are the best fit for different people" ? Well, I would LOVE to watch a FIERCE debate about which pump is the best for a totally cool, medium-athletic, adult female with great taste. But you're all so good-natured.
I'm jealous of all those screens. That is great info. I didn't even know the t:slim existed when we ordered my pump.ReplyDelete
I could get a lot of that information from my Medtronic pumps, but it wasn't so beautifully laid out. Using a Ping now, I really miss that kind of information. Because I don't use the Ping remote, I have even less info.ReplyDelete
