Re: [IP] Request information on Animas/MiniMed/DTRON Plus

Hi Bob!

    I'm new to the group as well, but welcome!  I have been on (and
currently use) both the Minimed Paradigm and the Animas.  I have been more
please with the Minimed, then any other.  The people are very supportive.
They aren't arrogant, but rather very helpful.  Also, I have had better
'service' with the Minimed.  The only reason I don't used exclusively
Minimed is that it is not waterproof.  As I am a 'hard core' competitive
swimmer, this created a problem.  Though I have not used the Disetronic, I
have done much research and determined that the Minimed would serve me best.
Good Luck with your decision!  ~Lattany
