I need to make a decision soon and I keep waffling between getting the new 670G pump and staying with 530 (getting a new one though) plus a Dexcom 5. I never used the enlites even though I had them. Just jumping from MDI to the pump the first year of diagnosis was a little overwhelming for me. I am now ready for a cgm. (Yes, I’m a slow study.) I have had pretty decent control with the 530. Last A1C was 6.1. I test ALOT though. I have read most of the posts on this site as well as others, but don’t want to miss something crucial. Here are my thoughts:
Plus for 670G:
My endo likes it and I trust her.
The guardian and its accuracy.
Suspend before low.
Waterproof capabilities (I love to swim)
Cutting edge technology
Does have a manual mode
Plus for Another 530 plus Dexcom 5:
Familiar territory with 530
Ease of sensor placement
Bluetoothing to mobile device ( I really would like this as I ride a bike)
Alarms for highs and lows
Proven track record for Dexcom 5
Minus for 670G
Negative reviews on the work involved for auto mode
Changing sensors difficulty which I have no experience with sensors
Sensor failure higher from what I have read
Minus for 530 plus dexcom:
No suspend before lows
Please share your thoughts. Thank you so much.
