Medtronic and requesting malfunctioning enlite sensor replacements?

So...Begin rant...I just had a sensor start to die on me after day 2 and found the hoops I had to jump through in calling really rather frustrating and insulting. The isig was high and the sensor accurate for 2 days, and then last night I started getting false readings of around 40, when in actual fact I was running rather high. The gap grew larger and larger until the isig is now dwindling, around 7 and gradually going lower, finally ending in a cal error.Has anyone else called Medtronic and…See More

"I was breastfed until I was close to 24 months. Diagnosed at 9 years old. I have heard all of the theories. Milk, immunization reaction, high fever when I was a child, etc. I also breastfed my 3 kids for 24 months. I did not take any precautions…"

I already have two kids, (now 9 and 12, soon to be 10 and 13) who as of right now haven't contracted the type 1 fun that I had to go through at around the age of 10. I am in a different relationship now and have another on the way.With my first batch were babies we had read the then fairly new idea that bovine milk could raise the chances of contracting type 1, and so just to be on the safe side kept them away from it for the first two years of life.Now I have another on the way, I'm revisiting…See More
