I've been out of touch for a while... but does anybody know what the future improvements for minimed will be, or at least what the rumors say? I guess the Revel is the latest and greatest, but I'm wondering what is a few more years down the line?

That's awesome Erika!

Yes - times are a changing. They realize that taking away the pump = not good control of D. Good control of D = great wound healing.

I just had surgery last week, and the hospital let me where my pump, along with my sensors into surgery. They thoguht it would be easier to monitor me. Can you believe that!!!!!

Erika upload the info to carelink and printout every 2 weeks and take them in when you see the doctor, that what I do. Sarah call medtronics and ask for some sure-t's they will send a couple for free to try, I would ask for 6mm.
Comment by Type1 on May 20, 2010 at 12:53pm
1 call to Medtronic should give you the "exact" requirement. I've been using 6mm and I use .5 for 6 years now per my CDE.
Thanks Erika.

Sarah, I believe it is 0.5. Someone else on here discussed this same topic. You can read it here;

Haven't been around in awhile. Now proudly sporting a 523 Revel in Purple. :)
Glad to be back.

The doctor should have carelink pro. They can access your records from their office. the carelink site has the info.
Comment by Type1 on May 17, 2010 at 2:04pm
I just gave my Endo and CDE my Carelink sign in info and they can access all my reports and pick all or which ever one they want to see. Works for me and they are happy too.
Good luck:)
