Re: [IP] re: Pam Brown's Message



I prefer two separate devices for my pump and CGM.B B  And I don't really like
the integrated meter-pump arrangement either. I use the info from my Dexcom
(trending info) to edit my boluses. I t is faster and easier for me to edit
the bolus without it being "populated" by the meter. And I can carry my CGM
receiver in my purse or a pocket and have my pump (T-Slim - so there is tubing
-which I also prefer) tucked away when wearing a dress. If my CGM tells me
that I have to take action (either bolus or change temp rate) then I'll dig
out the pump.

Pam,

B I commend you on your beautifully written e-mail! I would like to write an
e-mail to the FDA, too, but wonder if you recall the e-mail address you sent
yours to.

B On another CGM topic (related,) it seems as though I have been approved by
my
pharmacy plan to get the DexCom. DexCom has offered me a 30-day, money-back
trial on the transmitter. The durable medical supply portion of my health
insurance pays for my Enlites. As luck would have it, no sooner did I get
approval for the DexCom than I put in an Enlite last weekend that was
extraordinarily accurate. It even caught all low BG's, which is where my
Enlites
usually fall short.

B While I would hate to lose pump integration, I guess it would be nice to be
able to keep my 530G in my bra and not have to press it to turn off sensor
alarms. We shall see. My understanding, as I ask around, is that people's
bodies
(specifically interstitial fluid) respond differently to different types of
sensors.
