Default New Testing

First 24 hours of testing the OneTouch "ping" pump, totally new routine, first time in years not taking a needle, started off with high BG levels but now levelling off, a lot of new procedures to learn

Best wishes to you. I know at first everything seemed overwhelming for me, but after a while I'm sure you will get it sorted out. Let us know how you are getting on.

Thanks Strawberry, since it is only a loaner pump, I am extra nervous with it almost dropped it a couple of times

I can't speak for the Ping, since I have the Medtronic Revel, but they are fairly hardy. One day during the first week I had my pump I can remember almost dropping mine and when I looked "down" there it was hanging by the infusion tubing from the infusion site. Thought sure that would cause the infusion set to come out - but it didn't.

The Medtronic Revel also has a 4 year warranty. The casing on my pump is hard plastic. How are things going for you with the pump?

Good for you, glad to hear your sugars are improving. It takes a while and you are wise not to rush into making drastic changes all at once. I think the body does not like big changes IMHO.
