Using Enlite Sensors With Revel System

I'm using my Enlite Sensors with my Revel Pump and I get way better CGM results now than I did using Sof-Sensors! I am not paying $700 for an upgrade to the 530G when I can do the same thing with my Revel and the only upgrade is really the Threshold Suspend and the sensor timer set to 6 days... I don't mine resetting my sensor every three days and I think I'm really good at managing my lows... It's highs I have issues with.

Zoe replied to Leotha Fleming III's discussion 'Diabetic Behavior Change'
"Hi Leotha. I've not had complications (yet!) but definitely find non-diabetics don't have a clue about behavior/emotion changes from highs or lows, not to mention the stress of 24/7 D management! What are the issues you are experiencing?"
