"Not gels, since I don't usally use them anyway, but electrolyte fluids (think "Gatorade", but lower-sugar and higher-tech). My Other Half uses Gatorade."

"Smarties work pretty well. They don't melt and are mostly sugar. Also, they're small and can fit easily into a pocket."

"Charging seems pretty easy. Just connect to a USB port and you're ready to go. With that option and direct plug-in either to the wall or the car has to make t:slim quite unique. Thanks again for the close-ups."

"Hi Janice L. and you too Jigger. I'm getting ready for pump #5. I have had MiniMed 508's and Cozmo's. The t:slim looks pretty darn good. I'm curious about the tail that connects the infusion set to the pump. How does it connect…"

Oh sorry. I place the sensor on my abdomen. Haven't had any problems with it; however, I use some latex adhesive to make sure it stays put while sweating.

Welcome to TuDiabetes, Spenser. Wow, you and I were diagnosed just a few weeks apart. I was diagnosed on July 3, 1990. You might be interested in our discussion groups for Dexcom users or CGM users. I've been wearing a Freestyle Navigator (another CGMS) since Nov of '08 and love it.
