I know Dexcom has generally got the cake for accuracy in the CGM market, but now Enlite v2 or 'Enhanced Enlite' are available (in Canada at least maybe for a year in Europe) I'm curious to know how they compare. I've heard that for sure the new Enlite are much better than the old Enlite sensors.. but how close to Dexcom G4?
The official website makes some claims:
- 80% smaller in volume
"2 MiniMed 640G with Enlite has a MARD of 13.6% [MiniMed 640G User Guide] when calibrated 3-4 times daily."
though isn't clear if that's the new or old Enlite.. assume new? Except that this page makes that same statement and appears to be talking about the original Enlite sensor (since its comparing it to SofSensor)
That anecdotal info from the cwd forum sounds pretty good but.. *shrug* It is extremely difficult to be sure which Enlite is being talked about in most articles/press releases. Since the first Enlite is called the 'new' Enlite and the second one has the same name but is sometimes called 'enhanced'
I am at my pump renewal period getting ready to be locked in for another 5 years and it seems like most things are pulling me toward Medtronic (used to dealing w them, very good customer service, nice interface, I have a loaner pump from them and might be screwed for a bit if I decide to jump ship) BUT the accuracy of CGMS (not currently using a CGMS tho) and potential for better data interoperability w Dexcom are the sticking points
