    Does anyone have any comparison of the two? I started with the dexcom seven+ and switched to the minimed sensor because of the integration. I hate wearing the minimed sensor. It hurts so much more than the dexcom and I have a hard time wearing it as consistently. The new dexcom looks intriguing! Does anyone have any experience with it? Is there any word on when the enlite is expected to be out? I am torn between the hassle of carrying a separate device with a comfortable sensor or an integrated device that is unknown if it will be more comfortable.

    Daughter had minimed, ended up allergic to sensor, then participated in study for dex G4. If she had a choice, she'd pick the G4 - completely painless insertion she says. She cried when we heard the news yesterday. The extended range on the receiver is a huge boon in sports practice.

    Did she ever use the Enlite, though? Or just the current MM sensor?
