Thanksgiving 2017 I spent the entire Thanksgiving Weekend self teaching myself how to use my Medtronic 630G.
Thanksgiving 2018 - I may spend ANOTHER entire Thanksgiving Weekend self teaching myself my Medtronic 670G.
I FINALLY have commercial insurance again to cover the GCMs.
My Guardian sensors, resevoirs and infusion sets will probably ship next Monday or Tuesday. And of course there is no way I would do anything like this during the work week.
I self teach because I am NOT going to wait to go to another doctors office to have someone teach me the same stuff that is in the manuals. I can read. I have also been on insulin pumps since Minimed 507 (Bright Blue) in 1997 which I still have on a shelf.
Interesting note: I also enjoyed my Smith Medical CoZmo very, very much. I was upset to read that Medtronic somehow ‘sued’ them out of the U.S. of A. I would love to learn more about THAT. I kept my last CoZmo running for about 12 months after the company left the U.S.
Anyone else ever self teach the 670G?
Did it take roughly 3 days?
