Re: [IP] Made my decision, will be getting pump!

The MiniMed Paradigm is actually RF IN sensitive.  Sometimes you have to 
put it inside a cake pan just to get it to communicate with the Paradigm 
Link meter.  Congratulations on your decision.  Even though one of your 
reasons was incorrect, the other was definitely correct and valid.  Many 
times I have talked to a MiniMed Support Rep and they have told me how 
to do something "diabetic".  It sounded so off the wall that I said, 
"Are you diabetic?  Are you on a pump?"  When the answer was no every 
time, I knew they were blowing hot air.  Good choice!
