Important Safety Information

Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump and CGM System Intended Use of System The Animas® Vibe® System consists of the Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump paired with the Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter. The Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump is indicated for continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion for the management of insulin-requiring diabetes. It can be used solely for continuous insulin delivery and as part of the Animas® Vibe® System to receive and display continuous glucose measurements from the Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter. The Animas® Vibe® System’s continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is indicated for detecting trends and tracking patterns in persons (age 2 and older) with diabetes, and is intended to complement, not replace, information obtained from standard home glucose monitoring devices. CGM aids in the detection of episodes of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, facilitating both acute and long-term therapy adjustments, which may minimize these excursions. Interpretation of results from the Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter should be based on the trends and patterns seen with several sequential readings over time. The System is intended for single p Continue reading >>

    I go to the beach alot, and during the summer, I carry my humalog pens and lantus pens around, and I can feel that the insulin is, not "hot" but its warm, and my doctor told me that if insulin gets warm it expires, and acts just like water being injected. I still use it when its warm, and it works fine, same with the lantus pens. Anyone have any information on when insulin actually expires from heat? Or experiences...anything...thanks!

    Each insulin is different but I believe the range is 85-95 degrees. If it reaches that temp it starts to break down and possibly even crystalize.

    I had a novo pen in my car for almost a year after starting the pump. It went through a hot midwest summer (in car temps ~ 100+ degrees) and a cold winter (temps ~ less than 0 degrees).
    One day I went out for lunch and forgot that my pump was almost out. Needless to say, by lunchtime my pump had only 3 units of insulin left. I decided that even if the novolog left in the pen was not full strength it was better than nothing... it actually worked great (maybe even a little better) Since then I have used it a couple more times with no problems.
    I can't explain why this happened but tempature or age didn't seem to affect the insulin's potency.

If you decide to eat a little more, or do some unexpected exercise, you can just push a button to administer more or less insulin. And the pump’s continuous background drip of insulin mimics the action of a healthy pancreas, so your blood sugar levels can remain much steadier. Note that an insulin pump is NOT a ...

    It’s been more than ten years since Caleb began pumping. That’s more than 1,500 pods, roughly estimating. Caleb was four when we decided to use Omnipod. He didn’t have much say in the matter. Over the years, we’ve talked about other pumps. I thought he might be intrigued by the t:slim because of its slick touch screen. Not so. “Does it have a tube? Yes? No, thanks.” Simple as that. Traveling on his own and wanting the benefit of close ...
