Erika--I trust that your minimed will meet all your expectations. I have been using mine for almost a year, and it revised my life.

Erika, did you have your old pump for two years before Revel was approved? If not, how did you manage to get you r insurance company to pay for it?

That's great Dirdon. I use Opsite Flexifix(4" x 11yd, Roll). It comes in a large roll that you can cut to your desired use. It works great. I like the 4" over the 2". I get it for $35 and it will last over a year.
Continued good luck. They are my #1 choice(cheapest too).

My first use of sure-t went well other than having to adjust my basal up for a site that I could never use before, my back. Going to change today to a new site and hope for the same results there too. I almost forgot where the site was under my clothes othere than the connection pad, which I think is a little small and will reinforce with tape. My two week BS from carelink have gone from 138 to 131 after my switch to sure-t's and hope the down ward trend continues. I have been on the sure-t's for just under a week

Excellent! I'm betting you will consider them the #1 choice:)

My first sure-t use is a plus . Easy to insert, so far 1 used no sit problems yet.

Excellent news Dirdon! It's about time too. Good luck and let us know how the samples go for you. I love them over quick-sets.
All good things come to those who wait:)

I called MM today and they're shipping some mmt-866 samples to me, finally.I am excited to eliminate The high BS from infurion set problems. I have really struggled to get my 2 week average down to 136.
