    Paradign 512 MiniMed Pump

    I dont know if it is appropriate to post this here or not but I have a 512 minimed pump, my son used it for about six months then we upgraded to the 522. I hate to see this pump sitting in a box not being used. I called Medtronic to see if I could dontate back and they said no, but I can give it to someone, but we would have to call and get the pump re-registered into the other persons name. They said the other person would have to pay something for the re-registration and warrenty. The idea person to give this pump to is probually someone whos insurance may not cover the pump but covers the supplies for the pump. Anyway if someone is interested you can pm me and we can over it in more detail. Oh also the person would have to talk to your doctor to plan and educate about the pump and of course have a prescription. I can call mini med or you could to get more information also.
    If this is not a good place to post this just let me know I will have this post deleted. I surely do not want to offend anyone or do anything wrong against this wonderful site.

    Caution: Sharing Supplies/No Expired Products

    Children with Diabetes encourages customers to connect, yet safety is a top concern when it comes to--especially children--using second-hand supplies.

    Please note that most diabetes supplies are date and/or temperature sensitive, and are often pharmaceutical or medical device products.

    If you are considering sharing diabetes supplies, please check expiration dates, ask about storage and shipping arrangements along with the completeness of any product you receive (manuals, accessories), and test products to ensure they are working properly.

    Also, for the safety of our members, CWD does not allow the promotion of expired diabetes products.

    I have an Accu-Check Avia, new, never used, I would be glad to give to someone. It does NOT have the Multi-clix with it. Any takers?

    Jeff posted this on general discussion:

    The February 2009 issue of Scientific American has an article entitled "Hurdles Facing Unused Prescription Repositories" that examines laws in the US permitting donations of unused drugs (and I will assume other prescription items) for use by people who otherwise could not afford them. The article is online at:

    http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?id=...ing-the-health

    The print edition includes a map of the US showing states that permit donations.

    Does anyone have any extra IV 3000? Chell uses a boat load every month, her Insurnace only covers 10. Plus with up coming surgey, she will be using much much more, as the hospital does not have the IV 3000, we have to bring those from home. The will put tagederm on her, but she will break out, and thats not fair.

    Does anyone have one container of Freestyle strips that they can send ASAP?

    Dr. hasn't given us a script for them yet & my DD started pumping with Cozmo on Thursday & has already run out of the strips that are used with the attached meter. She's having to use a different meter & then input the info. into her pump which is fine but it would be nice to have a few strips for school until I can get the script & get it filled.

    I'll be happy to pay for them & pay postage.
    Thanks,
    Kristi

    I have several EXPIRED glucagon if anyone wants them for caregivers or grandparents to PRACTICE with.

    I'm thinking that big needle is intimidating, especially in an emergency. A dry run could might make a difference if the real situation ever got ugly.

    PM me if interested

    Are those insets the round ones? I have 3 of them. I don't have any cartridges I am waiting for the next supply and I only have 4 left.

    If those are the right insets PM me your address and I can send them out.

    I use the 90 degree InSets. Prefer the 9 mm, any tubing length will work.

    Extra Lantus

    I have 4 bottles of lantus that I don't need. They expire in 2/2010. They are still in the sealed box. We use a pump and I keep lantus on hand just incase..... The dr. wrote the Rx for the wrong amount. I hate to see it go bad. I just have to figure out how to ship it.:) PM me if interested!

    I have two 10 ml vials of Novolog dilutant for making dilulted insulin. DD graduated to regular Novolog a while ago so we don't need these. They expire 5/2009. PM me if interested.

    I still have some Precision Xtra blood ketone strips that I would be willing to trade for some One Touch Ultra Glucose strips. Send me a PM if you would like to make a trade.
