You may have heard that some IDS clinicians are using do-it-yourself hybrid closed-loop systems.We’re not alone:many of our patients are giving these systems a try.In fact, we’re now coaching people through the setup of these systems, and many are experiencing the best blood sugar control of their diabetes lives.
The biggest challenge we now face is in finding suitable insulin pumps that work with these systems.If you happen to have an old Medtronic pump in any condition, consider donating it to our office.
Specifically, we’re looking for Medtronic Paradigm pumps manufactured between 2006 and 2012 with the following model numbers:
515 or 715
522 or 722
523 or 723
554 or 754
(the model number can be found on the back of the pump, after the letters MMT-).
Of course, if you also have extra supplies (reservoirs, infusion sets), those would be appreciated as well.If you like, we will reimburse you for the shipping.
Please ship to:
