"I would not use anything but the pod either. Nothing is perfect, but for me, this is as close to being non diabetic as it's going to get. For now, anyway. Love the no tubing, and wouldn't use anything but."
"Not sure exactly what you mean by come with a website. I just use it stand alone, ie, download the results, check out the reports, email it to the doc if he wants it, etc. I don't download anything to a website for anyone else to check…"

"Frankly, I'm glad we don't have a reminder. I think I would find it quite annoying, especially when I change the pod late at night. I test often enough as it is, so I really don't need the machine to remind me. It must be a U.S. FDA…"
"What a pleasant surprise (the lack of BG reminder). Re: the moving button, that's pretty funky, keeping us on our toes, I like that.
Just ordered new pods this aft, they said I would be getting the new ones along with the pdm and software, but…"
Thank you all for the wishes. It's hard to imagine another year has gone by so quickly, and as the numbers grow higher, so does the speed at which birthdays seem to arrive. I appreciate the kind words. Rob
