I am considering changing from MDI to a pump after 37 years. While I like the tubeless design of the Omnipod I am waiting for the newer, smaller version to be approved by the FDA. For now though I would really like to hear from people who have tried a pump and have returned to MDI for whatever reason and get a different perspective. Thanks for your comments.
thanks, wow that is a tiny amount of insulin but as you said you have a small frame maybe that translates to a small amounbt of insulin. Congrats on your pregnancy, what did you have ?
Oh I am so sorry about your baby I can't even begin to imagine how painful that must have been. I have one son also but he is a senior in college.
i switch back all the time. I love having a pump, but I like to take a break from time to time. I went on a one week vacation where I was in the ocean a lot with surfing and swimming and all that good stuff, so I just went to injections for that week.
Some people have difficulty with doing that but It is not very difficult for me.
I like my pump because I have more control over exercise etc,
With MDI I find I have to use more sugar to keep myself from going low. I also use MDI if I am going on a trip where I don't want to deal with my pump.
All the pump companies let you try out their pumps for a while.
It may be worth doing to see how they feel to you.
I have a MM Revel because I wanted CGM together with my Pump.
