I’ve been pumping for a little over 5 years with MiniMed. I had my first pump for its entire 4 year warranty. I never had any problems with it, not even a loose battery cap.
I got my second pump at the end of February 2008.
Recently, I noticed a crack near the reservior chamber. From my perspective, it seems like a pretty large crack, but it is not actually affecting the functionality of my pump right now.
Since I have never had a problem before, I don’t know what to think. I know I can obviously call MiniMed and ask them, but I thought I would put it out there in the diabetes blogosphere first to get some expert opinions.
