Some pumps have reminders on them. I'm always forgetting or getting distracted. I'm getting a pump soon. I hope it is a reminder

All great advice. You might look into a Dexcom G4 platinum. It's a continuos glucose monitor. It has alarms and tells you when you are to high or to low. It also gives you a reading on the scream 24/7

Feel like the worst m in the world right now! Let my husband take the kids to dinner and a movie, gave my 7 yr old her insulin... 3 hrs later it was at 'high' rechecked and it was at 541! Feel like crap! Didn't calculate her carbs that well! :(
Looking for a "pay it forward" place. Switching pumps soon and will have a year's worth of unused supplies. Don't want to throw them away...
My insurance won't cover two expensive purchases within a certain amount of time. I want a CGM but need a pump. Do any pumps have CGM's in them or am I just wishing too hard?
My husbands birthday is coming up and we are going for dinner then he and our friends may venture elsewhere. My question is if you go out how do you explain the diabetes kit? Do bouncers even care? (Needles, lancets etc)

Are we allowed to ask or offer pump supplies on here?

It seems to me that there are support communities and organizations for kids with T1 diabetes, college kids with T1 D, and their parents. Do adults with T1 D not need support?
What do you think about medtronic's pumps!?
