Been pumping 17 years. Medtronic, Cozmo (My favorite by far, nobody comes close), Animas, Meditronic and for the last three months Tandem.
I've used the 6mm 23" Insets (Medtronic) and T:90s (Tandem) along with the same from Animas & Deltec (can't remember their names for them)
No big issues over the years, until now with Tandem. They flat out don't stick and even with the think skin tape/covering (never needed it before) they don't stick. The past three months for me have been Hell. I haven't had sugars like this since I was first diagnosed 30 years ago.
I've tried the alternative Unomedical sets, but no luck with those. I am running 80-90% failure rate with the Tandems and yet had no problems with the same Unomedicals from the other pump companies.
Tonight was the last straw - I threw the pump hard, but my son caught it in mid-flight. I'm sending it back to Tandem and going with Medtronic just to get supplies that work.
I have a couple of nits to pick with Tandem on the pump, but nothing horrible. (Some Lawyer got into their UX design & it's annoying.) But I can't live with sugars in the high three hundreds and four hundreds. My family is tired of it all too.
Anyone notice a drop off in quality of Unomedical supplies in the past six months, no matter which pump you're using?
