    and I are after is a week of doing archery canoeing and running around and stuff not work Log in to Reply Dave 24 February 2012 Great piece and fully agree I loved camp too I went on three at the ages of 5 9 and 13 Well technically I went on four but I got sent home from my first one because I caught chicken pox so spent a day in quarantine whilst my parents drove over to pick me up Thankfully they managed to squeeze me into another camp a few weeks later The last one is most memorable for being a campsite of raging hormones and kids injecting all over the place As Alison said the key part is being surrounded by other diabetics and removing the feeling of being the only one Speaking to my parents years later they loved it too as they were fully confident my time away was perfectly safe and they wouldn t get a phone call from a grandparent or aunty asking what do we do with dave as he s gone very white and keeps spilling his drink Parents do it everyone benefits Log in to Reply Report user Megs 24 February 2012 The camps do a great job promoting independence Sadly I was never allowed to go on one as my parents didn t think I would manage missing the whole point of them by a country mile What is the cut off age for the camps I m a very young looking forty something Log in to Reply Tim 24 February 2012 Going by Mike s and Meg s replies above there is obviously a gap in the market for grown up camps I was going to call them adult camps but I didn t want to encourage the usual sort of smut that such a suggestion would descend into Shoot Up s a family site after all Log in to Reply Tim 24 February 2012 Actually what am I talking about Smut is one of the great draws of Shoot Up Log in to Reply Mike 24 February 2012 Quite We could all show each other our BMs in the cafeteria Fnaar fnaar etc Log in to Reply Tim 25 February 2012 Hnuck hnuck Annette A 24 February 2012 I went to camp every year fromt eh age of about 7 up to the age of 15 ish I forget exactly Every year followed the same pattern After about 3 days I had a massive night time hypo spent the next day throwing up had my insulin massively reduced Came home at the end of it had to put my insulin straight back up to where it was before I went Every year we told them it would happen every year they said no no we have professionals here looking after you it wont happen However I did first come across a pump on on of the later holidays I have no idea how the young lady

    their failure rates too From what I ve seen on forums etc people seemed to have lots of issues with pod failures in the early days of the product This seems to have improved but is still around a bit Just worth seeing what they say about that http www insulinpumpforums com have a fair few Omnipod users so they might be able to help with any specific questions too Annette A 20 April 2011 You can I have fill a cartridge from a pen the top of a pen is exactly the same dimension as the top of a bottle spongy bit and all so the filling mechamism for a Roche pump cartridge no I had nothing better to do fits perfectly But that is filling a brand new cartridge from scratch with said filling mechanism still attached Never tried with one half done cant see how that would work I just used all my existing pens to fill up my first few cartridges so I wouldn t waste them before moving onto the bottles Nig 20 April 2011 Sorry It should say I accept that a syringe is smaller than a pen Nig 21 April 2011 alison you said I don t know how you fill a pod You get a syringe with each pod to extract insulin from a vial and to inject into the pod alison you said Your plan is probably theoretically possible but seems a very complex way of doing a pretty simple thing Reallly I thought I was making it simpler If I m going to keep a pen as a back up device it seems simpler to me subject to it actually being possible to use that as the source of insulin for the pump rather than the implicit expectation that you use a 10ml vial of insulin and the supplied syringe So only one size of insulin bottle 3 ml cartridge to supply both the pump and to provide emergency backup in the pen The alternative would be 10 ml vial for the pump via the supplied syringe plus 3 ml cartridge for random use in emergency in the pen by which time it may well be out of date Getting the correct insulin on a repeat prescription when there is a choice of two is hard enough getting the correct size bottle of a single insulin may well overwhelm the admin systems of my local surgery alison you said From what I ve seen on forums etc people seemed to have lots of issues with pod failures in the early days of the product I think this is a bit of a non issue really and is really largely down to unrealistic expectations I am not saying that those very few people who have had 10 consecutive pods fail on them do not have reason to complain clearly they do But those people who expect the same level of reliability from a bit of disposable kit with a 3 DAY lifespan as they would from a traditional pump with with a 4 YEAR lifespan are living on a different planet probably in a galaxy far far away I am not saying that the company should not improve the reliability of its products clearly it should if only to ensure it protects its reputation and survives long enough to provide a extra dimension to the competition between pump manufacturers I can assure you that if when I get my local hospital to fund it any failed pods I have will be brought to the attention of the distributor very quickly BUT the fact that Insulet launched the Omnipod in the last quarter of 2005 and it is still the only patch pump available anywhere shows how big a deal the technology is A few failures in the first generation product are hardly a surprise alison Yes I know there are pump forums with groups especially for Omnipod but in general they do not have the same combination of intelligence idiocy and wierdness as this one so I will need to take my time and find an appropriate source of reliable Omnipod wisdom annette but did you use the pen needle and pen mechanism to transfer the insulin from the cartridge to the pump That is the claim made for all the other pumps Roche is relying on you Annette Interesting that you say before moving onto the bottles should I infer that it is generally the case that if you are promoted to pump use your back up options are simultaneously relegated to syringes instead of pens Tim Post author 19 April 2011 nigho I used to be like you averse to the man bag But I quite like them now my main bag is a Visconti messenger bag http goo gl

closest I get to that sort of thing is my laptop bag but that is so full of laptop cables mice and paperwork that I don t even keep any fruit pastilles in it Besides it only comes with me when I
