@Sjl70 I live in Grand Rapids. My diagnosis is fairly recent though so this is all new to me.

I’m sorry it took me so long to get back to you. you said you were newly diagnosed how long have you had diabetes?

Since the end of July last year

I’ve been diabetic since 1986. I’ve been wearing an insulin pump since 1998.

I started using a pump 3 weeks ago & just had CGM training on Thursday.

Let me know how you like the CGM.

2 weeks in & I’m loving it so far. I’ve read a lot of people have had trouble with Guardian 3 sensors but so far mine has been pretty accurate. Auto Mode is another story though. I’m struggling to be patient while it’s getting used to me.

I’m so glad! I’m afraid to try it my brother had a bad experience.

Do you mind if I ask what happened?

This was years ago I’m sure you have a completely different device.
