Thanks to Mr. President I can not afford my insulin pump! Its is going to cost over $500 dollars for my pods. Which means 4 shots a day. Has anyone went back on shots after being on a pump?Continue

Please share with me your experience has been flying with an insulin pump. What about airport security, bringing supplies, did your blood sugars cooperate while in flight, etc. I'm flying for the first time as a diabetic to Disney world in four…Continue

I began using the pods when they first came out and went through the typical issues wen a pod alarmed.
When the smaller ones came out, I was also fearful of more alarms after reading how many of the users suffered with those issues. I was fortunate, until now, not to have suffered a string of alarms. Suddenly, in the past 2 weeks, I have had 5 fail from one box and still have 3 left.
