i have a minimed paradigm 712 pump and lately is been going off with random alarms. it can be sitting on a table and the button alert will go off. this morning 5 minutes after i bolused, the auto off alarm went off. its been doing this for a while and i'm not sure if i should call minimed about it. i have been told its normal for them to have random alarms go off, but it happens frequently and i am scared its malfunctioning. i have had it for over 2 years. (a pump usually lasts me about a year, i am surprised this one lasted me as long as it has)
so do i need ot call minimed about it? and if anyone could help me out here, do you know if minimed offers refurbished insulin pumps? I might just get one of those if i can find a cheap enough one.
