Hi all, I have the Medtronic CGM integrated with the 723 pump. I've had it a little over three years with mixed results. I've started to get a lot of unreliable results lately and I was just…Continue

"I made a garter out of some satiny material and 1 1/4" elastic. I put it on which ever leg I have my CGM sensor in and clip the pump right on. It stays put quite well and it's easy to access for sensor alarms. Also, because it's so…"

"I saw it. The whole insulin pump spiel was implausibile. The Blacklist is a watchable, but gory show. I liker James Spader very much as an actor: He shows his ability well, as his character, Reddington, wavers between delightful and deplorable!! Any…"

"SMARTphone tech seems very scary for pumpers as it is hackable. I don't think anyone has it in for me, but controlling my pump and life with a device as accessible as a SMARTphone --no way."

"My cgm can't even find my pump when it's a meter away unless it has line of sight. So unless this girl was in the same room as the police, then I don't think they could find her."

"Didn't watch it, but did you see The Black List on NBC Monday? This week's villain had a diabetic daughter who wore a pump manufactured by "Z-tec" or something beginning with Z."

Can this really happen...

So I was watching this weeks episode of "The blacklist" on NBC and I have a question. There was a missing diabetic child, she had a MM pump. The authorities ended up finding her by tracking the RF signal from her pump. I realize this is fiction tv, but is that possible? Are the signals in our pumps strong enough to be tracked as the show indicated? Love to have your input.See More

sarah replied to sarah's discussion 'Lifespan of Medtronic CGM'
"Just got off the phone with MM. They tell me average lifespan of CGM is 2-3 years. The rep was very helpful and asked a million questions to try and pinpoint the problem. The isig # was within range when I used the tester, so on the surface it looks…"

Sportster replied to sarah's discussion 'Lifespan of Medtronic CGM'
"When I purchased my first MM CGM the cost was $999 and my second MM CGM 2 years later was $2000. Not sure why the price increase was so much. But, I ended up paying $200 after insurance. Last I remember the CGM's warranty is 6 months and…"

sarah replied to sarah's discussion 'Lifespan of Medtronic CGM'
"I had considered that, but my insurance won't help with a new pump until next Aug. (every 4 years) I have accumulated a small stockpile of MM sensors (by using 6 days instead of 3) so I'm reluctant to switch and waste those. I guess my…"

"I kept my first one going for two or three years, I don't remember but I noticed some out of whack readings. I called them, they said "you can get a new one" so I got a new one and it went away. I've found it very useful. Pre-CGM…"

Spock replied to sarah's discussion 'Lifespan of Medtronic CGM'
"Sorry. I was not specific. The sensor is worthless when it needs replacement, not day to day. I have been having a huge problem with my D, and the CGM has been a dear friend in helping solve it. My readings, as long as they are in a normal range,…"

Hi Sarah,

I noticed that you live near me. I live in a southern suburb of Dayton, Kettering. I am always happy to meet another diabetic, especially one that has been at it for a while and lives in the Great Buckeye State.
