"There is no need to turn the sensor off in the pump while charging the MiniLink unless that is your preference to avoid alerts. I have always left it on and then just restarted it. When you say the transmitter lasted only one more day after it was…"

"I get the sensor end alert, then I shut the sensor off in the pump for about 20 min while I recharged the transmitter, reconnected but it only lasted one more day, so a total of 7 days. Then it would not reconnect. I will check the ISIG number next…"

"It depends on what you mean when you say "it dies". If you mean that you get the Sensor End alert, then all you have to do, as Graeme said in his post, is to do another Start Sensor New. However, as Aoife said in the post just before…"

Graeme replied to Graeme's discussion 'How long do you wear an Enlite Sensor' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"As long as you have a good ISIG number, you are good to start it again as a new sensor. I get lost sensor errors all the time, depending how I am wearing the pump. Generally I like to see something in the teens or twenties.. If the ISIG number drops…"

"This topic is about a NEW enhanced enlite sensor, one generation newer than the one available in the US. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing it in the US."

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...

Cheers,
Nadine

Hi Graeme,
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?
