Searching for Medtronic paradigmPAL software

Hi there,I am hoping that a Medtronic user from several years back will search their inventory to see if he/she has an old ParadigmPal CD that he/she would be willing to part with. I will be happy to pay shipping via paypal. I will even send a paid envelope so that it can be dropped in the mail if you like.If you saw my other post on this, the last attempt to get the software ended up not working out.Many thanks, Toby email toby (at) canning (dot) usSee More

TC commented on BriannaM's blog post 'a1c and employers'

"I agree with the other post that suggests your immune system may have very quickly wiped out your insulin producing islets, thus no change in your insulin needs. I take it you were also fully grown at diagnosis? I'm curious, are your BG…"
