"I am glad that you got the A1C down from 10 to 7. Medtronic did send me samples of the Mio, but I prefer the QuickSet. Ask to sample them. I have the CGM as well and it does require more attention. It does occasionally "lost sensor", but I…"

"I still use my MM pump, but not the MM CGMS. I use quicksets, 6 mm. Do you use any kind of skin prep/skin tac prior to inserting your Mio's? If so, try to not use skin prep before insertion. I also had trouble with no del alarms or elevated…"

"Hmm, I'm not sure about the problem as I've never used Mio sets. I use Silhouettes and have not had very many problems with them. I think they may have more sticky stuff? I have a 722 so I am not familiar w/ the 723, although I think my…"

About Me!

My name is Maegan. I live in Queens, NY. I am currently a student at CityTech in my last semester! I'll be graduating with a B-Tech in Hospitality Management- Dec 2007. In 2005 I graduated from The Culinary Institute of America with an AOS in Culinary Arts. I really love to cook, its my passion.

My husband and I have been married for 4 years. I actually met him when I was an intern at a restaurant he cooked at. We don't have any kids, yet. Maybe after I finish school and find a job with benefits and get settled into my desired career path.

Recently, I came back from Paris. I spent an enitre month there. It was amazing, the city is wonderful. I walked around the entire city and hit all the major attractions in a week and a half. LOL I tired so many new and wonderful foods and wines- it was great.

I'm pretty close to my family- especially my dad and my two "brothers" Benji (a border collie) and Sam (a beagle). They pretty much have it made, everyone spoiles them, especially my parents.
