quick question about my infusion set

I'll make it a quicky. I changed my infusion set and it turns out, the vial of apidra I used was one that I had accidentally left in the car yesterday during the day. I thought I tossed it but I had…Continue

"Unfortunately my only CGM experience has been with the medtronic ones. Nothing but failure and despair with them lol"

deathjamm replied to KellBell's discussion 'Medtronic 530g my first hand account'
"Agreed with everything you've said here. Medtronic called me up 2 weeks back asking if I'm ready to order a new set of sensors and I declined. I honestly have found no value in them and they're far too finicky to work with."

"ooooh never thought the type of battery could affect the accuracy of the pump. Has anyone else heard of this? That's worrisome."

deathjamm replied to swisschocolate's discussion 'Battery problems' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"That's strange. Could be a pump issue. My pump trainer told me to use Lithium Ion batteries only (supposed to last longer?) I tend to get about a month or so with each battery."

deathjamm replied to KellBell's discussion 'Medtronic 530g my first hand account'
"Are you getting weak signals or lost sensors when your sensors die? Might want to try recharging your transmitter and then reconnecting it using the find lost sensor option. The longest I've gotten out of an enlite sensor was 19 days (with 2…"

deathjamm replied to KellBell's discussion 'Medtronic 530g my first hand account'
"Sorry to hear KellBell :/ knock on wood but I've been averaging about 2-3 weeks per sensor. One thing I noticed is I'd get the lost sensor error after restarting it after the 6 days. I'd disconnect it, recharge it, then plug it back…"

"The front of my thigh is fairly meatless but I do have some. Most of my weight is in the belly section. I was as nervous as a cat in a rocking chair factory the first time but it was painless. That's one of the things I like about the new…"

deathjamm replied to KellBell's discussion 'Medtronic 530g my first hand account'
"I've posted a few times on here about how awful the new sensors are. Up until 2 weeks ago that is. I started inserting the sensor into my right thigh (instead of my stomach) and now it's accurate as all can be for me. Even through the…"

deathjamm commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users'
"I get so many conflicting information from medtronic support reps. One told me I was calibrating too much when I did 6 calibrations in one day. I then did 3 the following day and the rep told me I was doing too little and that I should be doing 4…"

deathjamm replied to Bella's discussion 'What was your last A1c reading?'
"When I went to my current endo for the first time (1.5 years ago), my A1C was 8.8. I made some extremely drastic changes to my lifestyle and I switched to MDIs and my next A1C was 6.8. I then went on to the pump from there and my last 3 A1Cs were…"

deathjamm replied to shari lynn Giarraputo's discussion 'Medtronic enlite serter glucose machine and minimed 530G is the pump.'
"So an update. SG readings were <40 all night again on this new sensor on day 2. Called up the rep. She tells me that the sensor is losing contact with the interstitial fluid while sleeping most likely which is leading to false readings. I told…"

deathjamm replied to shari lynn Giarraputo's discussion 'Medtronic enlite serter glucose machine and minimed 530G is the pump.'
"The pump itself isn't bad. It didn't really change from its predecessor. The sensors, however, are drastically different. Pros: The sensor itself is so much smaller Insertion is a piece of cake now Cons: They suck Since I started using…"

deathjamm replied to Graeme's discussion 'Enlite Sensors Not Sticking' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"I'm so not happy with the Enlite sensors. So far, I've had about a 30-40% success rate. I haven't had the problem you're having but their failure rate is incredible. They tend to last 2-3 days at most and then the calb…"
