        Hey, its not happened yet! i havent got to the shop for any - im going today. due to holiday for the next two weeks so unlikely it will happen then either! sorry I'm being rubbish sounds very exciting though.

        Do you take them to bed and leave them on the bedside table?

        My DP is being quite good atm, think ive got the pump basal in line just about :)

      Thanks. It is a Dexcom you're using? And how are you finding it? I'm composing a case study to pitch for NHS funding of one.

        Yes it is, self funded.

        I find it life changing. Seriously. doubt the NHS will fund one though as they wont even fund those who are hypo unaware. Let me know how it goes though would you?

      Hi,

      Is that an Animas Vibe and Verio IQ in your hands? If so, do they link up so that the data transmits from the meter to the pump?

      I have an Animas Vibe and am looking for a meter that will connect to it, like Roche's can to their pump.

      Regards,
      Conrad

        it is yes and no they dont.

        There isnt a meter that i know of that connects to the vibe, I actually use the CGM function which is what it is showing here.
        Thanks
        Engineer
