I think one thing to keep in mind is that the alarms on the dex are a lot louder than on the medtronic. I personally think I am safer with a CGM that is basically guaranteed to wake me if I go under 70 (in my case the dexcom does not miss lows ever) than a CGM/pump that would suspend basal insulin once I am already low but not wake me up to treat it with sugar. It is important to keep in mind that suspending basal insulin will take awhile to result in an increase in glucose. It is a tough decision though.
