LifeAfterDx--Diabetes Uncensored

Hi! I’m William “Lee” Dubois (called either Wil or Lee, depending what part of the internet you’re on). I’m a diabetes columnist and the author of four books about diabetes that have collectively won 16 national and international book awards. (Hey, if you can’t brag about yourself on your own blog, where can you??) I have the great good fortune to pen the edgy Dear Abby-style advice column every Saturday at Diabetes Mine; write the Diabetes Simplified column for dLife; and am one of the ShareCare diabetes experts. My work also appears in Diabetic Living and Diabetes Self-Management magazines. In addition to writing, I’ve spent the last half-dozen years running the diabetes education program for a rural non-profit clinic in the mountains of New Mexico. Don’t worry, I’ll get some rest after the cure. LifeAfterDx is my personal home base, where I get to say what and how I feel about diabetes and… you know… life, free from the red pens of editors (all of whom I adore, of course!).

Wow. Those of us who have pumped with Medtronic for years and years without ever seeing a Motor Error salute you.

There is probably a bonus pool at Med-T for whoever figures out the mystery. And lots of people there are also wondering who the dumb a** rep was that arranged this Revel/Sentry trial for you.

At this point, I'm not sure if the appropriate response is a loud SCREAM or a disgruntled (sigh).

I really wonder if it might have something to do with the multiple devices connected. When I worked for a cell-phone company years ago, we assigned unique identifying numbers to each cell-site which were transmitted over the air. When a particular type of data was sent just after that number, the combination of the two sometimes equated to a "Help, I'm dying!" message and the phone would drop the call. The only way to avoid that was to change the ID number. Over time, we developed quite a blacklist of forbidden ID's.

Your MySentry (or meter) serial number could be the culprit... maybe you should ask for another one of those gadgets instead. Especially if these errors always happen with the same CGM or ISIG readings (which get sent with the serial number), that could be the culprit.

Either my logic is way in outer-space on this one, or Medtronic owes me a few pumps, gratis.

No frickin' way!
Totally remarkable.
I like Scott's theory about it being something unique to your gadget cluster.

Not again. I grow up watching Roswell, could it be you live too close to the force-fields? You know by the intergalactic mother ship?
