What are reminders?
The InPen app allows you to adjust four different types of reminders. Reminders help you remember to dose, check your BG, and replace your insulin.
Missed dose reminders help you remember to take doses at your usual times throughout the day. When enabled, if you take a dose within the mealtime period, the app will not alert you. If at the end of a time period no dose was taken with the InPen or manually logged, the app will notify you and ask if you have missed a meal or missed a dose.
Long-acting insulin reminders help you remember to take long-acting insulin doses at your usual times throughout the day.
The replace cartridge reminder helps you remember to replace your insulin if you haven't changed it in the past 28 days. If you need to replace your insulin, you'll receive an Insulin Age alert.
