"Brad, I switched from the Paradigm 715 to the Cozmo (so switched in reverse) and share your sentiments. I felt like the Minimed was pretty and sleek, but the Cozmo was everything I wanted a pump to be. When I made the switch off of Cozmo recently, I…"

Switching from Cozmo to Medtronic

I will admit I am not used to it yet but Ive recently switched my Cozmo to a Medtronic 722 and am very unhappy. The problems I am having is its harder to keep track of records,Blood Sugers and Bolus amounts.My Cozmo I could just go to history and it would give me each record as I scroll down.The Medtronic I have to look at the meter for BG then go to pump for bolus numbers.I guess I can get the same info its just more work than the Cozmo.Then today I was having a large supper and the max bolus…See More
