Re: [IPk] Paradigm VEO & CGM



Hi Fay
I use Enlites with a Veo.  I find it easy to use, but not always entirely
accurate, especially if I have been lying on the sensor area in bed. Having
said that I love having access to CGM as it gives you so much more info. I
do know that people on various forums say that Dexcom sensors will last and
last which is obviously a financial help, I usually get about 8 days from
Medtronic ones..  My first Medtronic transmitter lasted 4 years (then I
replaced it with my new pump as it was cracking, but still working).
However, I don't use CGM continuously.  it is rechargeable, whereas the
Dexcom one isn't I believe.

By the way, if anyone is interested i have had an email from medtronic for
a starter kit of transmitter, 5 sensors and inserter for #275 instead of
#765. I could forward it to anyone interested off list (it's too graphical
to copy in here).
