  • Introduction

    Your Accu-Chek Combo insulin delivery system allows you to match insulin delivery to your daily needs. For example, if you are losing weight, or travelling to countries with different food habits, the Accu-Check Combo insulin delivery system settings need to be changed to manage these types of situations. You can change the Accu-Chek Combo insulin delivery system settings you entered in the diabetes manager Set-up Wizard, Bolus Advice and for the Reminders. You can also change the volume of the diabetes manager Sound and the diabetes manager time and date if needed.

    This lesson shows you how.

    Before making any changes affecting insulin delivery or warning limits, talk to your doctor or healthcare team.

  • Click on your demo diabetes manager buttons to practice what you have just learnt. If you decide to practice any functions, on your own pump or diabetes manager, make sure the infusion set is disconnected from your body so that there is no chance of accidental insulin delivery. Ensure all your settings are put back to where they should be at the end of the practice.
