Any Brazilian Diabetics on a pump out there? Have any of you tried to get a MiniMed 530G with Enlite Threshold Suspension? I've been on an Animas Ping & using a Dexcom CGMS for a few years now. As much as I don't really want to go back to MiniMed, it does seem like they have the superior technology at this point. As an older diabetic (62, diabetic type 1 since 1980) I'm feeling my lows less and less and am happy to know that the 530G with Enlite will actually suspend insulin delivery if you go below a programmed threshold. My husband and I moved to Brasil (where I grew up) in May of this year and I am now trying to get approved for a new pump. (Here it is not a matter of insurance, you have to go through the judicial system to be able to get a pump.) What my doctor and I are trying desperately to find out is whether or not I can actually get this new MiniMed pump down here. She has all the details for a MMT 722 Paradygm, but that one is a couple generations back and, unless I HAVE to go with that one, I don't want it!!
