I bought the mysentry despite of not being covered by insurance-but to the least,it's not what it's worth. As a nurse and a child with Type I diabetes- Dx Feb2011, my daughter has all the new and improved products imagined. She started using the paradigm 723 Dec2011 and on the CGM on Jan 2012.I think at this time having those 2 is enough. True-mysentry adds more visibility to the numbers and has more to offer with alarms but sometimes the more you know, the more you overcorrect. I had the mysentry for a week now and it will be going back to medtronic.
