What would happen if you presented Medtronic with a letter of medical necessity from your endo for an upgrade? They can't market to you since your child is under the age, but so many of our kids are wearing devices not yet approved for kids because of letters of medical necessity. I wouldn't roll over and accept this without doing whatever hoops you can jump through if you bought wanting the 530G.
I would be livid that they didn't make those details clear at the time. If you hadn't bought that pump, you could be getting the 530G without hassle now. Sometimes I'm really beginning to wonder about the Medtronic's corporation and the way they treat their customers. If the MySentry had been reasonably priced (like $100 for the baby monitor it is) to correct the volume problem, we would have never switched to Dexcom. As it is, I don't see us switching back to their CGM even with Enlite's release. Now we know how annoying their CGM is compared to Dexcom, that it quits reading if in "need" of a calibration, that it doesn't read far. Today my daughter's receiver was downstairs and woke both of us from naps even though we weren't anywhere near it. That is better than alarms that can't be heard and suspension of insulin. Don't get me wrong; I'd love low glucose suspend but first I want alarms that can be heard so that we don't get to the point of needing insulin suspended. KWIM?
