"Hi jm, I never used the 7+ only started with the G4 in November but I have to say from what I have read on here, the G4 upgraded version is significantly more accurate than the 7+ and the range allowed between transmitter and receiver is 20'…"
One think that I have done and I feel that it has helped me...is to clean the area where you are gluing the sensor to first.. our skins have a lot of oil, and glue doesn't like this..so I use the 91% Alcohol instead of the normal 70%…"
"jm, no river here in west grove...just a mirge. I looked everywhere...soory to have tossed it. Maybe someone will buy all your sensors? good luck. Want to suggest you try the G4. its truly amazing in accuracy."
"wow...nice river running in front of house,nice...without being to curious where is home or what river is this? i probably good google WestGrove PA...anyway, thanks for the email back, let me know if you find the transmitter,it could be a HUGE…"
Hi jm, I never used the 7+ only started with the G4 in November but I have to say from what I have read on here, the G4 upgraded version is significantly more accurate than the 7+ and the range allowed between transmitter and receiver is 20' compared with I think 5 ?

Hi B--If I may chime in here. . I got late onset about 4 years ago and tested positive for the antibodies about a year and half ago. I did MDI with basal insulin for a while and had heard about the pump, but was unsure about having a tethered device on me 24/7, including during sleep. I have the animas ping and have been on it about 6 months now. I LOVE IT! During meals, I don't have to fidget with a pen and pull up my shirt to inject and mess around with needles. . I chose the Ping because I swim and it's waterproof--the only thing is that I don't really like wearing the pump when I work out (swim and run), so now I wish I had the Tandem (not waterproof) since it's smaller and less bulky in the pocket. The pump also is convenient to figure out how much insulin you need to bolus and BG correct--it does the calculations for you!! So all in all, I'm glad I switched and don't think I'll ever go back to MDI.
Thank you. I haven't had diabetes long... 5 years (I'm 35 now). Mostly likely MODY (neg for antibodies but 0 cpeptide) but I've never had genetic testing. I've been insulin dependent the whole time. Wanted a pump for a while but it's never been financially feasible before now. The terminology and options are still new to me. It's good to hear that you haven't regretted the decision to switch to pumping!
I have a sample pod coming in the mail to try out. Knocking it off is a concern (or sweating it off), but it seemed easier than dealing with the tubing and the logistics of where to put the pump. It hasn't been an issue for you? How do you deal with time with it off when you swim? I typically swim for an hour at the time. Having to reattach during T1 of a tri concerns me too. Did you actually use the pod for a while then switch? I wish I could test out both types before committing to one or the other.
I agree with you about the CGM. My A1c is ok... in the mid 6 range. But I have crazy swings. I think even aside from running, a CGM would help me keep things more stable. Dexcom seems to be the most common. Do you use that one?
