I have finally come to terms with my choice (though may not be absolutely sure yet). I have used the MM 630G for over a year and the enlite for 11 months of the time before I switched it back to Dex.
I have a 670 pump on the way without their verifying I want it but have talked with Tandem and apparently my best cash cost will be $4300 for the pump. The installment plan cost is $4999, I am told.
Is that in line with what anyone else has paid? Remember, I don’t come from Animus so no deal there. I have always used Medtronic.
It came down to whether I wanted an awkward to fill pump, Tandem, or a totally frustrating cgm (Medtronic). I must use my arms for the cgm and it is a long pain changing or trying to restart the MM cgm. I see no physical difference with their new cgm that goes with the 670 but the photos/graphics online are ridiculously unclear.
Anyone think I am making a mistake? My decision is based solely on the cgm differences and a probable willingness to take longer for the pump cartridge refill.
Today I changed the Dex out in under 5 minutes. The enlite battery took about 30 minutes to charge and then at least 15 minutes or more to get the sensor inserted (awkward insertion) and taped down without the tape sticking together or the whole thing being pulled out as I tried to tape it properly.
Decisions, decisions. I just hope Tandem gets the combo loop going before I kick the bucket. Not a spring chicken!
