So basically the title of this topic!
I’ve lived with T1D for 15 years now, have been on the pump for around 10 of those.
I’ve been using my 640G and haven’t had any problems with it, but with my renewal period coming, I’m hoping to upgrade.
The new release of the 770G from medtronic is interesting to me, since it can automatically change delivery of insulin depending on what your CGM monitor is detecting ( less insulin if low, more if high, etc)
However I have noticed that the T-slim X2 can do the same if using the Dexcom G6 CGM device.
With all of that out of the way, I have the following questions.
- Has anyone moved from the Medtronic pumps to the Tslim X2, and what has your experience been?
- In Australia, are the Dexcom G6 CGM supplies covered by NDSS/Medicare, or will I be out of pocket?
-Can the Dexcom G5 sensors worth with the Tslim X2, and can I still use the Control IQ function with the G5 sensors?
Apologies for the terrible formatting and the rambling in this post!
