Re: [IPp] Continuous Monitoring Insurance Coverage

If it's continuous, how do you use it more or less often?  Do some  people 
just use it at night?  Don't you have to sync it with your bg  monitor once a

My  husband just corrected me.  Our continuous monitor lasted 48 hours
(my  mistake) and Medtronic claims that it should last up to 72 hours.
But, when  you're paying $30 per sensor, the difference between 48 and 72
hours is a  lot of money.  Also - my husband mentioned that Medtronic
admitted  that if you use the Continuous Monitoring system often - the
system has a  life of 9 months and then you may need to replace it.  If
you don't  use it often - then it should last 12 months.
