    Wine and Cheese? Apples and Oranges?

    The diabetes manager and the insulin pump are at their best when they work together. Would you like to be able to check a pump warning without having to remove it from underneath your clothing? Or bolus for a meal during a business meeting? Or manage your child's diabetes during sleep or play?

    Your diabetes manager controls your insulin pump just like a remote control allows you to operate a toy car. So, the diabetes manager offers you discreet insulin pump therapy. Let's learn how the diabetes manager and the insulin pump communicate to each other.

  • System behavior

    To save battery life, the pump screen goes blank when you do not press any key for more than 20 seconds.

    In this state, your pump is also ready to communicate with the diabetes manager.

    You can reactivate the pump screen by pressing any of the pump keys. But then for safety reasons, the communication with the diabetes manager is interrupted until the pump screen goes blank. To reactivate the connection, once the pump screen is blank, turn on your Accu-Chek Combo diabetes manager and wait for your insulin pump system to synchronise the connection again.

  • System behavior

    As soon as you turn on your diabetes manager, while the pump screen is blank, the devices will start to communicate. While the insulin pump and the diabetes manager are communicating, the insulin pump screen displays the Bluetooth® wireless technology symbol.

    Time and date settings are synchronized according to insulin pump time and date settings, at the same time the event history of the insulin pump, such as bolus history is reported to the diabetes manager.

    The insulin pump and the diabetes manager can't communicate with each other when they're too far apart. The distance between them should not be more than 2 meters.

  • Operating your pump with the diabetes manager

    The insulin pump sends information screens to the diabetes manager and if you press a button on the diabetes manager, it's like pressing the corresponding key on the insulin pump.

    As shown in the picture in Step 3, the legend for the insulin pump keys applicable to the diabetes manager buttons is shown in the lower half of the diabetes manager display.

    This picture is another way of showing the legend for the insulin pump keys applicable to the diabetes manager buttons. So, for example, if you pressed Icon on the diabetes manager (see grey button on the diabetes manager picture), it would be like pressing Icon on the insulin pump (see grey circle on the pump).
