Hi all –
Was using the Medtronic Paradigm Pump about 2 years back now - for about 10 years. After some customer service issues and lack of attention from Medtronic, I decided to give up my pump and try the more conventional method of Insulin Pens. Bad move, my AIC went up, obviously had no where the control I once had with pumping.
That said, I decided to revisit pumping.
Currently I am on the Omnipod. 1st week. So far – generally good. I have noticed some wobbling with the pod itself. It's a little awkward during a yoga class... Although, I love that it is tubeless, dislike the fact that the PDM (remote for the pump) is soooo big. I think I'll have to get a Man Bag to carry all my supplies. Customer Service support is stellar!
Still on the 45 day trial period, and debating keeping the Omnipod or switching over to the T:Slim.
Is there anyone out there who has switched from the Omnipod back to a more conventional pump? Vice-versa? Why did you decide to switch?
Thanks in advance for your feedback on your pump preference.
