New Enhanced Enlite Sensor

So I get an email today from Medtronic informing me of the new enhanced Enlite Glucose Senor. It lists a bunch of improvements over the old sof sensors, but not what has been improved over the first generation of Enlite sensors.I believe the enhanced sensors are only in Canada and not the US at this time, but does anyone know what's new with the second generation of Enlite sensors over the first generation?See More

"I regularly use mine for up to 10 days. I have to charge the transmitter after about 7 days though. I find most sensors will work right up to the end but some will get a bit wacky after a week or so. I'm putting this down to the indiviual sites…"

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?
