"I have and it worked fine, if you use a Dex then cheaper and easier to use bootcamp. Dex will not always work with Parallels or VMWare (although some have had success, but not me)."

Thanks all - great card too !!. Last night went out for a birthday curry and managed to have a Kingfisher "Indian Beer" and curry plus starters and stayed under 8 mmol/l all night and woke up at 6.5, this has to be the first time I've ever managed that. Pump and Dexcom G4 are amazing.

Welcome to the family!! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of what you will learn is that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and vent to, if needed.
