Paula Kreps commented on Lloyd's group 'Freestyle Navigator Users'
"Wore my last Dex sensor for 3 1/2 weeks with good accuracy. Changed when accuracy was way off and no err messages caught it. Like accuracy so far and am loving the length of time and calibration wearing sensors. Though I loved my Navigator. Maybe…"

Paula Kreps commented on Lloyd's group 'Freestyle Navigator Users'
"I got a Dex with my refund money thinking I would not be happy with the accuracy. It is so much more user friendly and the callibration is so much easier. I have been impressed with the accuracy although it may be off, but then I just do BG and it…"

Paula Kreps replied to JIMMER's discussion 'Omnipod vs Ping' in the group OmniPod Users
"I am T1, been pumping for 18 years. I love the freedom of omnipod without being connected to a pump with a tubing. I had to adjust my basals with the Omnipod but got it right quickly. The self insertion is a great feature. I think you need to ask…"

Paula Kreps replied to Eden Barrington's discussion 'CGM unreliable readings?!' in the group Continuous Glucose Monitor Users
"I use a navigator and my teadings are consistently closer than 20%. I know that it is impossible to get one anymore but the key for me is calibration. Check bg as recommended to calibrate and you shpuld be close. I use my calibrated reading to treat…"

Paula Kreps replied to Stacey Nagel's discussion 'anyone still using a navigator??' in the group Freestyle Navigator Users
"I am still using mine and have not had any coverage issues thus far. I have Humana ins.. I hope to keep it going until the new version that is out in Europe is out here. If it doesn't come here I guess Dexcom is the only viable alternative for…"

Paula Kreps replied to Gina's discussion 'Getting post meal numbers down a bit?' in the group Omnipod Users
"You don't say what insulin you are using. When I changed to Apidra I found my post meal BS's were in much better control because it is ultra fast acting. Novolog is also. Most endo's have sample bottles to try and you could ask to try…"

I have always carried larger bags...and it actually fits inside as long as I keep the clutter to an absolute minimum. I removed my tube of Dex4 and substitued a flat package..still couldn't fit a spare pod in there; so, it remains in a ziplock baggie.
