    Hello, This is my 1st post and have been a Type 1 for 3 years. I have only recently stated counting carbs and as of 4 days ago have moved to the 670G. I will be going on the CGM in 2 weeks and then Auto mode 2 weeks latter. So far love the pump. I have been getting a few hypos but this is the 1st time I have had a continuas basel rate so not surprising and the basel amount can be adjusted if required. I love the size and ease of use and how intuitive it is.

    I purchased a Lycra belt to house the pump and love the belt over clipping it to my pants. I live in Adelaide Australia.

    Will add another review once I have been on CGM.

    Cheers

    Auswi

    Hey Auswi - waves from WA

    Be patient. It will frustrate and confuse you. Sometimes when you're doing everything right, the pump and cgm doesn't play nice. I've recently jumped on the 670g bandwagon. It's an interesting ride, but fire away with any q's. Good bunch of people here.
