I've been using my 722 pump for just about a month now and already had to have it replaced. Over the weekend I tried to upload the pump data to Carelink and kept getting error messages saying the data could not be sent to the system due to an incorrect or incomplete reading of the device. I had to wait until Monday to call Minimed about it and the came to the conclusion that there was corrupted data in my pump. The pump itself was working but I couldn't get it to cough up all of my data. The last time I had uploaded my pump was July 2nd so I'm missing an entire week of data, including one day where I did evening/overnight basal testing. On Saturday I had started a new sensor and at one point my pump sounded the high BG alarm. The sensor screen showed my BG was 242 with 2 Up arrows, but my meter tests were 123 & 140 (two different meters). It was 2 hours after breakfast and I was expecting my BG to be dropping, not rising, and definitely not rising fast and already over 200. I called Minimed and was told to go ahead and calibrate but that I'd probably get a calibration error. The calibration did take and the numbers settled down after that, but I wonder if this is what corrupted the data in my pump.

I've been playing around with Carelink a bit. I know the reports will be much more interesting & helpful once I start the CGMS. This was a good day; I think I had only one reading below 60 (54) but I had a couple of near-200 readings, too, which is unusual for me. One was after breakfast, which is my biggest problem. I don't know how to save the report image so the whole thing gets shown here, but the bottom section shows # of carbs and exercise/intensity. Below that is a summary of BGs, carbs, insulin units and other fun stuff.
