    Hi all!

    Does anyone have experience with using the tandem T slim x2 at altitudes greater than 10k feet?

    I was told by them that it is not designed to work above that altitude and that it would give me an alarm and stop deliveries, but honestly, I am getting tired of all the cool stuff that I can't do because of this.

    I am in Colorado and there are plenty of mountains that I want to do that are greater than 10k. Yes, I know that I can not use the pump for that day, but managing diabetes on a hike day is hard enough with the pump.

    Thanks in advance!
