Insulin Pump And Aluminum Welding

Would like to know if anyone here is welding aluminum and wearing an insulin pump. I've tried to get an answer from Miller, the manufacture of the pump, no one wants to come up with one, because of being afraid of a law suit. I offer my 2 cents worth (due to economy - worth 1 cent now). I have an art teacher/sculptor who also teaches a metal welding class in an art studio for artists/sculptors who want to make metal sculptures but who may need some instruction in the welding aspects. He teaches oxy-acetylene welding, brazing, cutting and stick welding as the art center is rather limited in it's equipment. (Their stick welder is Lincoln AC only tombstone type 220 VAC. He wears a pacemaker and he has had little interaction or felt effects while stick welding. On one occasion, he mentioned he felt a little twinge in his chest when he was doing some stick welding but that may have been my fault for buying lunch for the class at a greasy spoon restaurant before he started teaching the class. I am not familiar with insulin pumps but I am guessing, (repeat guessing) they may be a little less sensitive to magnetic fields and such from welding. 1 - pacemakers and MRI - what questions do pa Continue reading >>

    My new endo wants me to consider a Medtronic 630G + CGM. I'm currently on MDI. She is suggesting this one because it turns off the insulin if one goes low. Does anyone have any experience with this? I've not worn a pump before so any words of wisdom/opinions would be appreciated.

    It's a pretty new pump! I have only seen 2 user reviews and 1 hates it and the other loves it. I do recommend an insulin pump as long as one knows how to use it. The pumper needs to be the one that manages all things that happen with it so I would not connect this 630 pump to me. I do not want my pump to make decisions regarding turning off my insulin.

  3. i don't know about this.
    I have a pump and a separate CGM.
    Is this pump/CGM covered by Medicare or a Medicare supplement?
    thanks,
    Susan

    First time poster here. Im brand new to CGM, using the Minimed 630g with Enlite sensors. Ive been scouring the forums for advice and everyone says you can re-connect a sensor once its expired to extend the life past 6 days. I have a good site in, but every time I go to reconnect it, it says Sensor Expired. What am I missing? For example, the sensor expired this morning. I turned off the sensor connection on the pump for 20 minutes, then turned i ...
