KiwiRox replied to daniel billings's discussion 'gcm' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"I'm not sure which CGM you are using, but the meter is generally used to get real-time blood sugar readings and to calibrate your CGMS with your receiver (whether it is the pump or a separate device). Any meter should work."

JDRF Bike Rides - Registration now open

Posted on March 10, 2011 at 1:12pm 1 Comment

As for the past several years, I'm once again going to blaze 100 miles as my little effort to help raise money for research for diabetes. JDRF rides take place in 5 cities during the year. I'll be participating in Death Valley for my 4th time. Mile options are 32, 64 and 100. You can find out more about the rides and sign up at http://ride.jdrf.org.

If anyone wants to join me from Los Angeles, let me know.

Happy riding.
Kiwi
