The 630g is HEAVY. As an active person who likes to run I have to leave this at home.Thus sometimes creating my bg to sky rocket because I have been without insulin for an hour. I can't even do yoga with it on cause it pulls my pants down in class. Thus again creating my bg to skyrocket after exercise. My 530g would stay put inside my sports bra but got damaged to to sweat and stopped working when I was about 4oo feet above the ground on a rock...

While there are some nice improvements to the 630G from my previous paradigm model, it seems it comes with loads of negatives. Here are my top complaints: 1) Alarms go off one after another - you clear one for the next to pop up and it gets beyond agitating. Not to mention only being able to delay another notification (say if your blood sugar is a bit higher than normal) for 3 hours. Its not pleasant having to be woken at 3AM to know you STILL...

The 630G belt clip pin falls out. They should make the screen to read upside down like a apple product. If you wear on belt and try to look down to read it is upside down. You must unclip from belt every time and the belt clip keeps failing. Two have failed already and when I called they are on BACK ORDER. If they had a holster for this pump that might help but the new belt clip is junk. When they sold this pump they said it was there best but I...

Medtronic Minimed Insulin Pump Review

Terrible and stressful. I had rather *** on an electric fence than deal with Medtronic. I have been a customer for 5 years and reordering supplies is still a hassle. It is ridiculous.
After many issues with the 530g, and a few serious issues when the CGM gave me inaccurate readings, and DID NOT ALERT me to a low of 29, or high's over 400, I can not depend on the 530g System. After speaking to a CS Rep I was told that maybe I had been using outdated insulin, that I may have over extended the sensor beyond the 5 days, or my infusion sight was the issue. EVERYTHING BUT that the pump had malfunctioned. Along with calling the...

Hooman Hakami Executive Vice President and President, Diabetes (763) 514-4000 x 818-576-5883 Jenny: 818-576-5883 I too have given up on the 530G and CGM. I have had the pump replaced 5 times in the past year. Many issues. Keep calling CS and followed all of their advice, but it is still unreliable. MANY MANY sensors replaced, but the issues continue. Returns are only allowed within the first 30 days. So I am out of luck. Because...
