I have tried 7. I am using both dexcom and medtronic sensors at different times. I like medtronic sesnors because it goes right to the pump. With using dexcom it is a separate thing to have, and the alarm is soo loud.

Michelle I have gone 12 days with one sensor with no problems.

Well I work with a whole bunch of engineers and they are a true rare breed in all. Although, I am queen of the roost so it dont matter. You knwo you casn go 6 days with your sensor. I am glad things are going well.

Jeff....I love reading your comments and reactions. I felt exactly the same as you describe when I started with the 723. It's like being in a completely new world! It's refreshing to read about your satisfaction and happiness.

How do you like being an engineer...? Would love to know what it's _really_ like. I think I still have the visions from when I was 5!

Best to you,

Jeff, congratulations on your decision to be on the pump! It also changed my life, I have been on it for a little over a year--and would never give it up (even tho' one doctor threatened me tha if I did not test my blood sugar enough, she would "take away my pump--end of that doctor!) Good luck with it.
