Hello everyone, I am new here and have an appointment with my CDE on Thursday morning so I can try the T-slim. If all goes well, I will officially switch following the trial! I wanted to get your feedback on a conversation I had with a Medtronic…Continue
When I was trained on my t:slim it was recommended that I charge the battery a little every day. But I found that not to be too practical for me. So now I just let the battery drain and then give it a full charge. The lowest battery % i've gone down…Continue
