Not Sure If I Should Switch

I've been on the fence about switching to the latest pump and sensor from Medtronic because of what I've been reading here. I know this system has been use in Europe from some time before it was approved for use here. So I guess my question is, has this sensor always been a problem?See More

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or
message to jrtpup on her page.

Thanks my friends!
