"On one of the other forums, someone posted that in Europe they now have 'optimized' enlite sensors - a NEW and improved version of them! I wish we didn't have all the FDA red tape to get new products. Their enlites are being shipped…"
"Spent some time with the Minimed support. They sent me a new Serter and some replacement sensors. I then worked with a local Minimed educator and and she gave me some pointers on how best to use the Serter. Hopefully things will work ok going…"
"I'm so not happy with the Enlite sensors. So far, I've had about a 30-40% success rate. I haven't had the problem you're having but their failure rate is incredible. They tend to last 2-3 days at most and then the calb…"
"The Square you drew on your photo is not the entire sticky area! There is a piece of paper that gets pulled off - I do that before pulling the needle out - and that exposes the sticky tape that sits below the transmitter. It is shaped the same as…"
"I started to use my Minimed 530G with the Enlite Sensor this month. I have dry skin and it's winter time here. I wonder if that has anything to do with the problem. I also notice the design of the sticky area is too small. Only the 1st 1/3 of…"
"Ten years back, my son was new to the MM pump and he received frequent no delivery warnings over the first two to three months. He had a tendency to tighten his belt really tight over the coil of pump tubing. Once he started leaving the tubing…"
"I have to agree with Regina. I have had MM pumps for about 10 years and the only times I receive "No delivery" alarms, I have run out of insulin in my reservoir or the infusion set is having an issue, be it that at insertion I bent the…"
Hey Graeme I will start my cgm training in july 24, 2013 and I was wondering what other parts of your body you place your cgm, myself I am skinny guy and I think only my belly where I got more fat and how you like it so far? you cgm, a little nervous with the needle we don't have here in US the new enlite which the needle looks small. thanks
Hi Graeme! I do not have diabetes; however, I can only imagine that it is a whole new ball game once it is your child with that diagnosis. I too have a type I son. My son is 13 and was diagnosed when he was 10. Cole is also on the Animus Ping. He started it on 3-21-11. How long has your son been pumping? Do you wear a pump?
Thanks for the info. I didn't realize that the measurements would be in US values. There is already enough math without continually converting to mmols's!
You must have read that Animas is planning to integrate their pump with a Dexcom7? I just sent off an e-mail to the Animas rep to ask about an expected release date. I am expecting the answer to be vague, but if he gives me any specific info I will let you know.
I want to tighten my control as well, but may wait on the CMG if the integration is not far off...
I am over inVictoria! Just saw your post about wanting to buy a Dexcom7 through the States. I have been thinking about that myself for the last while. So far, no one can tell me much. Please pass on to me any information you find, I would really appreciate it! Maybe they would give an even better cash price if we each bought one?!
One blog I read had great things to say about the Navigator. Have you looked at that CGM as well?
