RE: [IP] Opinions on the Paradigm upgrade

According to MiniMed, and the manual for the 512, you CAN utilize the
Bolus Wizard with a manually entered blood glucose.  (You can access the
manual online through MiniMed's Website.)  I too am considering an
upgrade from the 511 to the 512 and I'm leaning towards it.  However,
I'm still awaiting the training video which is being sent, so that I can
see how the features actually work.  Also, I was left a telephone
message by a MiniMed sales rep stating that there was a study which
showed better control with the 512 and Bolus Wizard.  I am awaiting this
in hopes that I can get my Endo to write a letter of medical necessity
for the upgrade so that I might possibly get reimbursed by my insurance

I would also like to hear from anyone who has personal experience with
the 512, good or bad.

Just to let you know as soon as they replaced my BD monitor, I've only
about 2 E-3's in the last 6 weeks. I absolutely love having the bolus
and you can't utilize this feature without the BD Link monitor.
