Well the manual was easy enough to understand (shock)
Last night I was wanting to use an advanced bolus type. I soon found I couldn't work out how to do this.
I looked up the manual and found out you have to enable both square & dual wave before you can use them. I've now got them enabled.
This is the first thing since changing from the Vibe that I really couldn't do without just playing with it.
I also had a high of 17 last night with 0.6 blood ketones. As I was due a cannula change today anyway, I decided to do my first solo set change. It went well and I never had any real problems. The new pump has a lot of helpful messages as you do things.
I'm still not good at using the handset / meter. I've really only been letting it send my BG then using the pump to do boluses. It is also beeping a lot after use that I don't really know why. I like the BG send feature. It is amazing how when using my Vibe I'd so often forget a BG and have to check my meter again. With a Bluetooth meter that problem is over.
I've just had a message from my brother saying a big package from Medtronic has arrived, so hopefully I'll not be overly effected by the supply issues. The man on the phone did say that he could only send one pack of cartridges, with the balance to follow. That gives me two months worth to be going on with.
I really need to get on my PC to write the post I want to. There was loads of interesting things at my pump training. Like one older couple (70s?) with the husband getting the training with his wife the diabetic. A young girl 18 with her diabetic family. Her dad was with her and on an older Medtronic pump. Most of his children have type I it seems. Plus a lady with gastroparesis that had just started using the Libre on the Friday before.
