    Yesterday I was all set up with a new pump. I decided on the Medtronic 640g and so far, I have been most impressed. It does all what my previous pump did but seems easier and has a couple of added features - like the fact I can set up a bolus from my Contour Next glucose meter!

    I have also logged my interest in getting a Libre which I believe would be most beneficial to me, especially with my lifestyle. I am waiting with all ears pinned for information about whether or not all the CCG's in my area are willing to fund the Libre. This has really brought the postcode lottery of health right infront of my nose. I find it most unfair.

    You have my best wishes, hope you do live in the right postcode - so many of us don't.
