Medtronics travel loaner???

I've seen a number of references to loaner pumps available from Medtronics for travel overseas. The links to the company info are broken, and searching their site has turned up nothing. Have they discontinued the program???--HeidiSee More

"I've been on the 723 for a little over 1-1/2years. Initially had the Medtronics CGM and never made friends with it, in part because it was pretty nasty to change every three days--it hurt, sometimes bled, and I had a reaction to the adhesive…"

"I'd been wondering for several months why I was getting such unpredictable highs, and wondering where I was going wrong, getting lazy, etc. Medtronic had had me change sets, to no avail--and I continued to think it was something I was doing.…"

"Actually, that's not quite true. The relationship between insulin/blood glucose and emotions is significant--and bi-directional. And there's certainly a link with stress hormones, both emotionally and physically--blood sugars run higher…"

"We just discovered a ginger ale that has only 11g of carbs for the whole 12oz(?) bottle. The magic is thanks to Stevia. It is not marketed as diet and does not have the aspartame or Splenda aftertaste. It's super strong, which I've been…"

"Are you on a pump? I think it would be MUCH easier. I've been able to tweak the settings and am pretty much between 80 and 180, with a nice flat line hovering around 100-115 between the hills. I don't think my numbers would be anything…"
