I am officially going to be cheating on Medtronic with Dexcom. http://irunonbatteries.blogspot.com/2013/06/cheater-cheater-pumpkin...

That ain't cheating. That's doing what you need to in order to control your diabetes as best as you can. I also found the Dex to be more accurate than the Medtronic CGM, so I switched. The Med was missing severe lows, and I don't feel them until they are in the 40's, and since I live alone, that's too dangerous. The Dex has picked up every one, even if the number is not the same -- it's the alert that tells me to check my BG that I need. So more power to you, and good luck!
Is dexcom at all less expensive than Medtronic? Does anyone know of more cost effective pumps?
You know I am not sure. I am renting this one for the week from my doctors office (insurance is covering it) it is only $150 for me out of pocket if my insurance didn't take it. I was planning on looking into it. I will let you know!
