Our little fundraising champions

Recently Diabetes SA had the privilege to visit St Joseph's School at Hectorville after being informed of a fundraising effort by some students at the school. Michael Proctor, Assistant to the Principal contacted Diabetes SA to advise that eight young girls had raised $532.90 for the Association through a cake sale in which they not only made the treats but also sold them as well.

Diabetes SA wanted to acknowledge this work so organised a visit to the school to meet the girls and present them with a Certificate of Appreciation for their efforts during the school assembly. The school was very welcoming and provided an opportunity to meet the girls and understand the reasons for choosing to fundraise for Diabetes SA. Many girls shared their own family experiences and really wanted to help.

Diabetes SA would like to thank Michael, the girls and the entire St Joseph's school for the welcoming we received and the time to provide awareness whilst recognising the fundraising effort of these 'eight little fundraising champions'.

How to Return Recalled Medtronic MiniMed Infusion Sets – information for pharmacists and health professionals

18 September 2017

Following the recent urgent recall of the Medtronic infusion sets, Medtronic has updated the instructions for pharmacists and healthcare professionals about how to have the recalled infusion sets replaced. This recall was initiated following recent reports of the potential over-delivery of insulin shortly after an infusion set change. You can find more information about the recalled Medtronic infusion sets here.

To receive replacements for recalled infusion sets in, you can visit https://checklots.medtronicdiabetes.com and follow the instructions on the website.

The site can be used by all pump users, pharmacies and healthcare professionals. The website will prompt you to enter the REF and LOT numbers for the infusion sets. You will then be told which of the infusion sets are included in the recall, and which are not.

When submitting your request for replacement infusion sets you will be asked to complete the Pump Serial Number field.

For pharmacists submitting requests for replacement infusion sets, select 'PHM' for the Pump Serial Number field. If you have previously checked lots and now want to order replacements, please make sure you clear your cache on your web browser before completing the online form.

Healthcare professionals will need to select 'HCP' in this field.

To ensure that your replacement request is processed, make sure you click the SUBMIT button once your form is complete.

Once the online form is submitted, replacement box/es of infusion sets will be sent by Medtronic directly to your nominated delivery address, free of charge. Please cut-out and retain the barcodes on your recalled infusion set boxes. These should be placed in the reply-paid envelope that will be included in the delivery of the replacement infusion sets. Send this envelope back to Medtronic but do not return the recalled infusion sets. You can dispose of your recalled infusion sets once you have returned the barcode to Medtronic.

Please do not use or return any of the recalled infusion sets.

Happy feet

feetA diagnosis of diabetes, whether it be T1DM or T2DM has the potential to cause harm to your feet and overall wellbeing, sometimes a small cut can produce serious consequences.

Diabetes can cause nerve damage (called peripheral neuropathy) that reduces or changes the feeling in your feet. Diabetes may also alter the strength, structure and elasticity of blood vessels (called peripheral vascular disease) reducing blood flow to your lower limbs and feet.

Peripheral neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, foot deformities, and accidental external trauma are common causes of foot ulceration in people with diabetes.

Daily feet checks

Have a look at your feet daily; if you have difficulties with vision or mobility consider using a hand held mirror or magnifier, or ask a family member to help you.

If you notice any of the following see your doctor, nurse or podiatrist as soon as possible:

  • Do you have blisters, cuts, wounds or damage to your lower legs and feet?
  • Do you have any changes of feeling to your feet, differences in touch and temperature?
  • Are there any areas of unusual colour changes; light or dark areas or bruising?
  • Is there noticeable swelling or red hot areas on your lower legs or feet?
  • Do you have any callouses, corns or bunions?
  • Look for nail problems, are they overgrown, showing signs of flaking or discolouration?
  • Have you noticed any changes to the shape of your feet or toes?

Hints to keep your feet happy and healthy

  • Try to wash your feet using lukewarm water and soap using a washcloth or sponge.
  • Carefully pat dry your feet remembering in between your toes.
  • Moisturise your feet to prevent cracking, but stay away from in between your toes, this can lead to fungal infections.
  • Cut your nails carefully not too short, straight across and file in one direction.
  • If you have concerns about how to cut your nails ask your podiatrist to demonstrate on your next visit.
  • Leave treatment of corns and callouses for your visit with a podiatrist, never try to cut these yourself.
  • Avoid walking barefoot, even in summer.
  • Wear clean dry socks daily, look for socks that have been developed and recommended for people with diabetes.
  • Stay away from bulky thick socks or those that have tight elastic bands.
  • Look for appropriate protective footwear; ask your diabetes educator or podiatrist for recommendations.
  • Remember to shake out closed footwear for any hidden items that may have gotten into the shoe; feel the inner lining to make sure that it is intact and not rolled up.

Urgent Recall - Medtronic MiniMed Infusion Sets

To determine if you have any recalled infusion sets go to https://checklots.medtronicdiabetes.com.

The website will prompt you to enter the REF and LOT numbers for all of the infusion sets in your possession.

You will then be told which of the infusion sets are part of the recall, and which are not.

The following link will tell you how to have any recalled infusion sets replaced by Medtronic. It also contains important safety information about avoiding potential insulin over-delivery: https://www.medtronic-diabetes.com.au/customer-support/safety-information

Please do not use any of the recalled infusion sets.

If necessary, please make use of your diabetes self-management back-up plan as agreed with your health professional until Medtronic are able to replace your recalled products.

Medtronic will replace any recalled sets free of charge.

Medtronic has advised that replacement infusion sets are made with new and enhanced materials which reduce the risk of insulin over-delivery after an infusion set change.

Diabetes Australia, as the administrator of the NDSS, will be directly writing to people who have purchased Medtronic infusion sets since July 2016.
