    Hi Guys, just seeing if any of you use this. I have a Dexcom g6 sensor and a Medtronic 640g, so I know it won’t work. But my dr told me a Roche pump works, can anyone shed some light on this ?

    Hi @Topher This is a good article for you to read: https://beyondtype1.org/the-guide-to-diy-looping/

    I am now using the Tandem Slim with Control IQ and the G6, and whilst I still have to manually do corrections, it's an excellent system for night time control and keeps me in a very tight range.
