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.

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,

Been on the pump for a day and starting with CGM next week,so far I love it.I've already seen place's for quick correction's and feel differt's and feel better,why did I wait so long?
Comment by Judith on July 2, 2010 at 5:30pm
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.
