Medtronic 530G with Enlite has been APPROVED! :)

   Hey guys! I haven't posted anything here in a long time but due to some new stuff I hope to start posting regularly. I just found out today that I was approved for the Medtronic 530G with Enlite system and I'm really excited (and nervous)! I have been a Medtronic Paradigm pumper for 4.5 years and have been very happy with my experience. This will, however, be my first experience with a CGM, aka, Continuous Glucose Monitor, and I'm excited about the possibilities of how it could help me. I'll readily admit that I am also rather nervous about the unknown of this new system!

    While making the decision to try this system, I was somewhat surprised by the lack of user stories I could find out there. I believe this is largely due to the fact that this is a pretty new pump/cgm, so I decided I want to share my experience as I start it. I hope to post about weekly (maybe more) about how its going so that I can hopefully share insightful information to those interested.

   Final thoughts, my pump should be shipping anytime now and I should be hearing from my local trainer in 5 to 10 days. March the 6th is my 6 year diabetes anniversary so this couldn't come at a more perfect time :)

Until later,
