We have narrowed it down to the mini-med and Ping. I need advice from those who have used both to help me with real life information. We have used the inset 30's with the cozmore for the last four years and with the ping don't have to change what we already know/comfortable with. Has anyone made the switch from the inset 30's to the silhousettes? How do they compare? Is their sil-serter as affective as the inset 30's? More painful? Manual insertion vs insertion device. Do the Silhousettes last as long as the inset 30's. Is the redundancy of having to scroll up to the correct units on the Ping a big annoyance. Having used the cozmore it appears that min med functions are more familiar. For Ping users what functions do you love about the Ping that the Mini-med does not have? Is the remote bolus feature useful? For Ping users, does having to work in Units and not Carbs take getting use to? Is the larger color display on the Ping helpful? Does the limiting 200 unit reservoir get in the way? I will have to pay out of pocket for the CGM sites. I can see doing this every now and then but not on going. What do you love most about the CGM? Has anyone used the new MySentry with a pre-adolescent? If so what do you like about it. Is it worth the out of pocket cost of $1,900? Have you used the MySentry to help with lowering the A1C? Having switched from the Cozmore what is up with the "filter"? Is there anything new just about to be released that is worth holding on for a few more months?
