My doc has just prescribed an insulin pump--actually, he first referred me to an endo, but that doc wants 6 weeks of classes, $750 for the initial visit, and doesn't take Medicaid. :-( So I've been referred to the rep who supplies pumps and training directly.
I've been on insulin for 20 years and still can't control bGs, so I am more than willing to try the pump. But I have NO idea what to look for. I read a thread on the topic from January, and saw a lot of opinions. Many like the Animas PING, but I don't know if there have been any developments I should know about.
I am 65, female, no danger of wearing a bikini, "brittle," so I think I need CGM. Now using Levemir and Novolog. I have autoimmune diseases--am a bit concerned about site reactions.
What pump or combination of devices should I look at? Thanks~!
