I’m back!

4 11 2010

Hey everyone in the D-OC! Loooong time no blog.  Last we spoke, I was busy living my IRL, and while that is still the case, it’s time for me to get back into diabetes-land.

I recently got involved with a local usability group and it has inspired me to apply that knowledge to my diabetes.  I plan on putting together a number of videos about my experiences with my various diabetes devices.  Below is the first, introducing my new insulin pump.  I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to being a part of the blogosphere again.

Disclosure:  I am not affiliated with Animas or Dexcom in any way, shape or form. I am simply a user who would like to see some improvements.  All opinions expressed in this blog via text or video are mine and mine alone.

Glad to see a fellow former Cozmo user back and blogging! I’m in the process of the big switch to Animas myself and I had NO IDEA that they didn’t include a site reminder feature. Good to know, and now I’ll be working on thinking up my plan of attack in figuring out how to remind myself. I would LOVE to see a lot of the features that the Cozmo had get incorporated into other pump designs, like the Hypomanager and the disconnect. I hadn’t even thought about the Site Reminder.
Looking forward to seeing more of your thoughts on the matter.

[…] A while back, I started doing some videos about the usability of my new Animas Ping insulin pump.  It was a lot of fun, but the holidays and some other personal things sort of put a hamper on that. […]
