Timothy replied to Sportster's discussion 'Enlite Sensors with Revel Pump'
"Just get your doctor to write a prescription for enlite sensors. Have him write on it " do not substitute" I did this and got me sensors with no hassles. They are bound by the prescription wording."

Timothy replied to Sarah's discussion 'Controlled vs. Uncontrolled'
"I think non symptomatic is really the key here. I know for certain if you tell your doctor that you are having lows that cause you symptoms, he or she will list your as uncontrolled. As for the glucose data, I suppose there are varying scales."

Timothy, congratulations on being named a featured member of the week.

Please share!

Get Your Test On! Where else can you make a donation without taking money out of your pocket?

The 2012 Big Blue Test has started! Between now and the end of the day on November 14th, do the Big Blue Test every day to help us reach our goal of 20,000 entries.

Let your TuD friends, and family/friends/co-workers know about the Big Blue Test. If they don't have diabetes, they can still take the Big Blue Test every day WITHOUT testing their BG.

Every time YOU do the Big Blue Test the program sponsor (Roche Diabetes Care, makers of ACCU-CHEK® diabetes products and services) donates $5 to support organizations that help people with diabetes in need.

If you've never taken the Big Blue Test before, it's really easy. All you have to do is:
Test your blood glucose.
Get active for 14-20 minutes (or whatever you can do).
Test again.
Share the results on BigBlueTest.org
Come back every day and tell others!
(If you don't have diabetes, you can still take the Big Blue Test every day. You just don't need to worry about testing your blood glucose.)

Share your results in our Big Blue Test discussionif you wish.

Thanks :)

Hi Tim,
thanks for the info. I was guessing that, but assumed there would be more logic in the receiver to 'know' it was the 'right' sender.
