Re: [IP] Paradigm 512 vs Cozmo



Yes, thanks, I'm very glad that the pump is working so well for me too. Can
you tell me what the Cozmo does that the Bolus Wizard doesn't? The bolus
wizard also has programmed information about me specifically, not just a
static number. It knows what my target is, it know my insulin sensitivity
and it know my carb to insulin ratio.
I'm curious to know.
Thanks
Adele
