"The meter that communicates with the pump is also another one, my pump rep said it was way more accurate than the contour link which the 722 uses. But you dont have to use the meter, its just an option."

"Unless they balk at selling it to you. In my state, I asked if I can just get the sensor w/o the pump and was told "no" but, at the same time, I am very confident it will work. Then the third party here is my insurer, who may also decline…"

"You can use the enlite sensor with the 722. Just need to tell it there's a new sensor after 3 days (re calibration not required)."

"One other difference between the x22 and x23 models was finer grain control of basal rates which I found very useful upgrading from 522 to 523. The x23 model can be set in .005 increments, half the size of the prior x22 model setting of .01…"

"Sorry to highjack this thread but the 530G/VEO may be available by late spring this year as soon as it is approved by the FDA. See the Diabtribe site and do a search. I believe I saw this in the August-October issues. It mentions by June 2013."

"I live in a backwards country (USA) where we don't have the 754, we have the 723. I had the 722 for several years and switched to the 523 as I realized I don't need that much insulin and like the slightly smaller pump. The -23 series pumps…"

Medtronic Paradigm 754 vs 722 model comparison

Dear all, I live in India and my son (9yr old) has Type 1 and is currently on injections twice a day. Am looking to buy the pump for him and I had a trial run on 722 model and I found it quite convenient and comfortable for my son.Now am told there is a 'better' model 754 from Medtronics and am recommended to buy it rather than 722 model.I have tried to look for comparison for these two models but I couldnt . Can anyone please share your experience in using these two models from a comparison…See More
