I was dx with T1 4/2011, did injections for a while (levemir/humalog), then went on the pump 9/2011 mainly because I got pregnant. Now I want to go off the pump - I'm averaging 10 units a day, 70% basal/30% bolus. I eat low carb and exercise and like others, I think we caught it early enough where my pancreas is still producing. I have an appt with the endo next week and will most likely go back to injections. The pump has been good for precise units, but I think I'm educated enough to manage. One thing I'll have to figure out is exercise - I'm able to suspend the pump now while I work out, will be different when I can't do anything about the insulin already in me.
I went with the minimed pump because my endo was very familiar with it, but if I pump again, I would rather go with the omnipod. I have a very small frame and wearing the "pager" was challenging and hated the tubing. I realize the omni adds bulk too, but at least it's attached to my body in one place.
