Thread: Medtronic Mysentry Review!!!!

  1. #1

    Unhappy Medtronic Mysentry Review!!!!

    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.

    Default Any one else using this?

    When my DD was diagnosed 4 years ago I heard that this had been at a Diabetes Technology conference. So now its available 4 years later. Is anyone using it? Whats it cost? Does it work? Is 50 feet enough distance? The last post said they were sending it back. Why? Lots of questions.

    All the best

    We have it and we love it. I wear hearing aids, and there is no way I could hear the pump alarm for lows. I have no problem hearing the MySentry. We have a two story house and the MySentry picks up readings even when Tyler is outside. And while we may have overcorrected a low or two, it has helped prevent some scary lows that I wasn't expecting. While it is not perfect, and sometimes loses communication with the pump, it is another piece of technology we are thankful to have. We don't have the Guardian, so it is so much easier than pinning down a 3 year old to check the pump.

    I am considering getting the mysentry. We started CGM about a month ago. I like it, but the nighttime alarms don't wake Meredith. Last night I slept in the same room with her as I thought she might go low. I didn't hear the alarm right away. Not until it was really going off and then I had to really listen for it. Of course, Meredith was sleeping on her pump with 2 blankets over her. The cost is what I'm not sure about. But, what is the price of a good night's sleep?? I can't remember!

    We love having it. If the issue is that you're over-correcting, then maybe the problem is the correction factor and not necessarily the MySentry. It should allow you to run tighter control at night because you don't have to fear sleeping through an alarm.
