Hello there. I have been a paradigm pump user for the past 5 years and do not love the system for many reasons. For example, the Paradign apparently communicates well with the Bayer Glucose meter, however, my insurance won't pay for Bayer, only for the One Touch, and although it reads it as well, I feel that I'm stuck with old clunky technology. The Minimed CGM costs and arm and leg and then it finally broke and it feels so 19th century, so I purchased Dexcom CGM instead which worked great and was very accurate but unfortunately sensors are costly to replace and just out of my reach. I also lost the Dexcom, perhaps a message from God, and now I don't have a CGM, I'm running out of supplies for my Paradign pump and I'm tired of all this technology that I feel it is being controlled by some Wall street investor. So, I need to make my move,
It just doesn't make sense why there isn't a system where you have the pump and sensor in one unit which are controlled by an app on a smart phone! We use our phones all the time, but no one, as far as I know, had come up with an app that communicates with a pump and CGM and a Glucose meter as well. Can this be so far our of our reach?
Any how, I'm hoping for sound advise on my next big investment. thanks fe
