My brother has beenlooking into getting a new pump. He’s currently on an old Medtronic pump, but is using a Dexcom CGM. He met with both Tandem and Dexcom reps and, somehow, he is of the opinion that if he uses the Tandem with the Dexcom, he’d have three sites on his body. He thinks the “third” site is needed for the two devices (pump and CGM) to communicate with each other. Could this possibly be true?
Another question…when he met with the Tandem rep, he was shown how to fill the reservoir, but said he had a lot of trouble doing so. But…he can’t remember if he had his reading glasses with him. I’ve read on here that some people do have trouble filling the reservoir…is it something you quickly get used to?
Thanks to any of you who can provide me with some information…I am not the most up-to-date technical person here!
