Hello John and welcome to the forum.
There's lots of videos on line to watch regarding the pump you are having so have a browse in that dept.,
Also a number 1 must is the book pumping insulin by John Walsh. You can find that on amazon, it will be the best investment you ever made :)

Any questions you want answered just ask as someone is bound to know the answer if not then you can be pointed in the right direction.

One of our mods @MrDaibetes is using that system, along with the Guardian G3 sensors which allow for the hybrid closed loop functionality. Do you know if you are getting sensors too?

I have the MM640G which has a simpler form of ‘smartguard’: https://www.everydayupsanddowns.co.uk/2015/07/64-days-with-minimed-640g-ep-3-what-is.html

When are you due to start with it, because its successor the MM780G (which allows a little more adjustment of the hybrid closed loop target values) has been CE marked and is due to roll-out across Europe soon.

Hope you get on well with the switchover - the forum, and having the ear of experienced oump users will be very helpful for you.

Hi John and welcome to the forum.
If you have any questions about the 670g fire them away, I have now been on this insulin pump with sensors for almost a year, I am sure you will find this pump useful.

Only checking, cos you'll need the dose adjusting bit more after you get your pump than you ever imagined possible!

You will be having the sensors, due to the fact moronic will not let you have the pump unless you agree to a years worth of sensors. (Well that was what I was told)
