 Are you on the CGMS? The pump isn't the issue. I went from the 715 to the 722
so I just transferred my settings and hooked up right away. It's the CGMS that I
need help with. I did finally get in touch with Minimed and the trainer for my
area sent me an e-mail, saying he was going to talk to my CDE about setting
something up. I now have an appointment for next Wednesday, the 25th, at my
CDE's office. Both she & the Minimed nurse will be training me.
