One of my medical professionals said they probably wont offer it, and the 530 has only been approved with CGMS use in mind. That said, I would like to be able to know that I can upgrade or get another new pump when my warrant is up next year. I know I wont be using CGM. I'm also looking at the SNAP pump with great interest.

Comment by lisa c on August 18, 2014 at 3:14am

I have the 530 g. Got it with the intention of using the CGM. After 3 months of total frustration, I went back to the Dexcom for CGM. However, I do still have the 530 G as pump. Whay did they discontinue the revel?

Comment by Laura S. on August 17, 2014 at 9:38pm

Does anyone know, since they may not be making new Revels anymore, will you be able to upgrade to a 530 and use it without the CGMS feature or no?????????

Chris,

It is my understanding that Medtronic Diabetes Support can view your CareLink Personal information for the purpose of troubleshooting or providing you with technical assistance.

All other CareLink Personal information covered by Medical Privacy laws, the EULA/Privacy policies, and HIPPA. I know you can choose to release CareLink Personal information with your physician/medical provider to assist with your medical care.

You can get additional information from Medtronic Diabetes support line (phone number on your pump) or the contact number on the CareLink Personal web site.

These comments are based on personal experience only, and are correct to the best of my knowledge. I have used CareLink Personal four years and share data with my physician.

Hope this is helpful.

Chris, you are sharing it with them. On my last two sensor fails, they used my CareLink data to troubleshoot my sensors. I don't know how much else they do with our data, but I will ask some folks when I get a chance, and I will re-read the privacy/EULA notices regarding CareLink. In the U.S., due to HIPPA laws, they can't share it except for limited purposes without identifying the person whose data it is.

Comment by Chrs on July 23, 2014 at 8:49pm

Hi guys..
Do I automatically share all my data on CareLink with Medtronic, or is it kept totally private just for me?

Comment by Laura S. on July 3, 2014 at 2:49pm

Fifty percent co-insurance for supplies on my new HMO plan. And new pumps are the same. I hope MM can find me an upgrade in 2015. These rates are not very pretty!
