"Relatively new to the whole sensor/pump thing, but I did shut it off one night because it kept complaining of a lost sensor. I like to keep my pump under the pillow - means I can roll over without rolling onto it.
Overall I've been fairly…"
"Yup!!!! I leave them off during the day too because they are so inaccurate, I cant trust that they'll right. And I was getting repeated alarms all thw time.
I decided I'm going to switch to Dexcom ASAP. Today my sensor said I was low w a…"
Does anyone else turn their enlite sensor alerts off at night?I tend to get a lost sensor alert at least one night during the life of a sensor. The alerts tend to wake my wife up before me, so I turn them off.See More
"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…"

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?
If you are new to diabetes advocacy in the traditional sense of the word, you may be thinking, “What the heck is a docket!?” I certainly was the first twenty times I heard it (yes it took that long). For Read on! →
