I have a mini med Revel insulin pump which has the soft-set CGM sensors. It is 4 years old and I can upgrade to the 530G with enlite. I want to know if it is worth the $850 I will have to pay to upgrade. It seems to me that the only difference is the smaller CGM sensor and the "Threshold" automatic shut off.
I don't know if those improved functions are worth the cost. I currently don't use the soft-set CGM because I found it painful to insert, bulky requiring tape to stay on, often inaccurate, and would wake me up frequently with lost sensor errors. Is the new sensor that much better? Is the transmitter strength improved or will I still get "lost sensor" errors while I sleep.
Any reviews I can get comparing the two systems will help me make my decision.
