straight away, i met the clinical research coordinator and began filling out paperwork. a nurse came to draw my blood and collect a urine sample. the nurse also hooked me up to an ekg machine (there's a first time for everything) and printed results for the doctor to read the next day. we waited for about an hour, then, until my test results came back indicating that i'd passed the screening.
supplies laid out on the counter, a diabetes educator came to teach me about the new system. having been on a medtronic insulin pump from 2006-2011, it didn't take long for me to get the hang of the 670g and enlite sensor. after practicing uploading (i'll upload weekly to medtronic's website), we packed up the bag that i'd brought with test strips, glucometers, a blood ketone meter, infusion sets, reservoirs, sensors, batteries, and the like and before i knew it -- i was on my way out the door! next visit scheduled two weeks later, and a week after that on 11/16 the new auto feature, SmartGuard Auto Mode (what all of the hubbub is about), will be turned on. just in time for thanksgiving.
