I just received my Medtronic Pump in the mail last week, and am curious to know if anyone has used their insulin pens to fill the pump resevoir? I don’t want to start pump therapy unless I can use the three months supply of Apidra I currently have in pens. The Medtronic rep said no, that you can’t do that, but I don’t see why not, if you take the insulin out of a vial with a syringe to use in the pump, why can’t you take the insulin out of a pen with a syringe?
I am really anxious to get started on my pump, but don’t want to waste all my pens- not to mention the expense of them!I am awaiting a response from my Endo, but thought I would check here as well, to see if anyone has done this, or has heard of this.
Thanks in advance for the replies!
