matchmo1 replied to Spock's discussion 'Pump and Airport Security'
"I've been using a pump for over 30 years and have ALWAYS kept it on when going through Security. The body image thing does not seem to affect it at all. More and more TSA people recognize the pump and simply have me touch my pump, then they…"

"Riva, thank you for your thoughts! Hope you've had a wonderful birthday. I'm only 6 months behind you...in age and diagnosis! I, too, was diagnosed at age 18 (in 1972)and celebrated 41 years of diabetes in August. No complications for me,…"

matchmo1 replied to Romanova's discussion 'CGM is driving me crazy' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"My Endo's justification for NO lows is that they cause brain damage and memory loss. Well, I've been doing this for over 40 years, and I THINK my brain and memory are both working pretty well! I could not find anything on line to…"

matchmo1 replied to Romanova's discussion 'CGM is driving me crazy' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"Hi Romanova. I've been using the CGM since January. By February, my Endo had my average BS running about 160, which is about 40 points higher than I'm used to. I was furious. She doesn't want me to have ANY lows at all. (Has anyone…"

"Thanks for your reply, Diabetic Runner83. My first CGM sensor stayed in 6 days, the second one has been in 5 days. I noticed there was a little blood when I inserted the needle, but the rep said that's OK. I'll change my sensor tomorrow.…"

"I am new to the pump. I just started in the begining of Nov. I started the CGMS the first of Dec. I really do like it. At first I would freak out when I seen the differeneces on my pump and my tester and I would really freak when I would see down…"

Hope replied to matchmo1's discussion 'Minimed CGM' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"Glad it is going well. I have noted the same thing. At night I clip the pump to my PJ bottoms, on the same side as the sensor or else I get low sensor signals."

matchmo1 replied to matchmo1's discussion 'Minimed CGM' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"Well, it's been a while since I've posted, but I wanted to update everyone on the CGM. I sat down the Medtronic rep on December 13 and have been "hooked up" since then. Things are going great! I LOVE being able to watch the…"

Hope replied to matchmo1's discussion 'Minimed CGM' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"It means not using it one night, the night that you insert. I insert a new sensor, attach the CGM, and thengo to sleep. I pree "start new sensor" first thing in the AM, and it asks for a reading almost immediately, usually within 1-3…"

David C Weisberg replied to matchmo1's discussion 'Minimed CGM' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"I don't think you can. If you are concerned about this, count the days from your placing the sensor and replace it before it usually conks out."

Brent.Allsop replied to matchmo1's discussion 'Minimed CGM' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"As other’s have said, I’d give up the pump, before giving up CGM. In fact, I didn’t get the pump, till they had CGM. CGM is what makes reasonable control possible (mostly because of all the alarms that seem so anyoing.) Also, as…"

Leotha Fleming III replied to matchmo1's discussion 'Minimed CGM' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"You do not want to turn off the high or low alarms. It would be defeating the purpose of CGM. Turning off the alarm would cause more unaware hypo or hyer. One of the purpose of CGM is to help control DKA, but if you turn off the high alarm, you…"
