I am about to start on the Minimed 723 next Wednesday. Any seasoned pros have any tips they would like to share? I would be grateful.

Always have a suply of batteries, alcohol swabs, and transderm to cover your transmitter. It takes a while to adjust, but it is all worth it. I love my minimed pump.
Patience. It took me about a week to begin to get comfortable when I started pumping, lots of finger sticks needed to adjust rates! About a month to figure most of it out - what worked, what did not work, and is it the pump or me that is weird!
Lots of time spent on the web looking at what solutions others have. And as Michelle said, always carry a spare battery with you!
Hi, I am in the same situation. Tomorrow I have my first training class to start to use my Minimed 723. I took my lessons on line 2 weeks ago. I am feeling very nervous and happy in the same time. But I think it is the best way to control my Diabetes.
I hope you are doing well and I wish everything it's going to be excellent.
Keep in touch,
Regards
So far it's going good. I haven't had as many highs and lows with the pump. I'm still learning how different foods affect my blood sugar several hours after I eat. How's it going for you?
