Good question. I believe it is. This morning I woke up with a sensor glucose reading of 130 and blood sugar reading of 125. Not bad! The plastic tubing or filament from the Enlite sensor is thinner and shorter and it goes under the straight. Because of several adjustments I have been making with the new pump my blood sugar readings on day 1 and 2 were all over the map. The inserter for the Enlite CGM involves more steps and I strongly advise you and your son to look at Enlite CGM insertion videos on You Tube if possible. Because I play hockey (goalie position) I found it much easier to wear the inserter with transmitter on my hips in the back. Right now my CGM is on my abdomen because it is more difficult to use the Enlite inserter from behind. There is a special tape which keeps the CGM in place which would more difficult to do unless someone else is helping you. Today will be day 4 and we were told that it can stay in for 6 days as opposed to 3 days. I will let you know how my sensor readings compare to my actual blood sugars. Let me know if you have more questions!

Good luck! Please let us know if the sensor is accurate. My son is getting his in January. Hoping the sensor is way better than the one we have now!
