Hi Karla, I have Medtronic Minimed and I am very satisfied. It is easy to use and very stable. Good Luck from Sweden :)
I a new pump user as well.I just got theAanimas ping getting hooked up tomorrow.
I wrote this question nearly 4 yr ago now. I've had my Animas Ping since July 2009 and I adore it. Your life will never be the same. Learn everything you can about all the settings so you don't have to depend on someone else to do it all. That is my best advice. I can adjust any of my settings to deal with the gain or loss of a few pounds and the ups and downs of diabetes that happens for no reason. My body chemistry seems to work better on the pump than when I did not have diabetes at all. I wish you the very best of luck.
I have the animas ping. I never had a pump b4 so it will work.
I've had a minimed since January 2009, and I love it. Rarely have any issues with it.
