Sorry think that was far too long winded a response!!

It's not about what you do or don't do with the IOB (yeah you can override or adjust any suggested amounts), it's that the figure thrown at you in the first place is not based on the parameters YOU set into the Vibe! You set in X hours of insulin duration, Vibe works to an extra 2+ hours for some unknown reason.

Well the Roche doesn't.

Just set it 2 hours less then and see if that makes it right.

Perhaps they expect you to use Humalog, which has a sting in its tail?

After all, why would anyone ever in the world want to use insulin from a EUROPEAN manufacturer, when they don't even know where Denmark might be ...

Mine does this too. I had noticed it but thought I'd done something wrong a while back. It doesn't always seem to do it for me, only sometimes. I thought it was maybe only for bigger boluses.

Hi Liam, yes it's rather inconsistent too! If it did this with ratios there'd be an outcry and a petition on 38 degrees to get Animas to sit up & take notice (or something) lol. In the meantime....just trying to let other Vibers at least be aware of this anomaly :)

I've been experimenting with this issue of IOB and I think it's not actually an issue.

The pump takes into account if you use a combo bolus extended over a period of time. For example this lunchtime I ate early and I still have IOB because I did a two hour extended bolus of 65% of my dose. It may explain the inconsistencies with duration of IOB if you extend the dose longer (I do this for pasta meals). I've checked and rechecked it on a straight bolus it uses insulin activity of 4hrs for Novorapid. For an extended bolus it takes it into account.

I also double checked with someone I refer to with anything that troubles me with my Animas and they were in agreement. It's functioning as it should and taking into account the extended (combo in the case of the Vibe) bolus.

No it happens on normal boluses for me it isn't an extended one. I only really noticed it when I was doing so much basal testing at the start as it would have IOB when I'd start that it shouldn't.

Okay, I retract my post!  ::)  @self Just seen it, it's a very small amount and seems to be wiped out when you next bolus, that's probably why I hadn't seen it. I just had to correct for a very slight amount 6hrs post my meal... On the pump clock I was late by about 6 mins and my correction showed IOB of 0.09u.

I'm guessing it's a software issue which could be fixed via a patch but I doubt they are able to reproduce it. I'll let others know about this and see if we can get some answers  :)

Ingrid, thanks for sticking with it, least I know that is what is going on. Still trying to rack my brain if this was brought up during training as there was little snippets of info that weren't relevant at the time.
