I need some help and opinions about pumps. I’m getting ready to pick a pump and would love to hear people’s opinions on the different choices available in Canada (I’m in Ontarion BTW). So I thought I would start off with some background info first…I was previously on a pump (MM 715) several years ago when I was in my late teens (I’m 24 right now) but the pump ended up malfunctioning and the warranty expired. To make a long story short, I’ve since reverted to MDI and have gotten back in control of my diabetes after an eye opener of a situation (hypoglycemic seizure where I ended up with 2 broken shoulders).
I finally had an opportunity to meet with all the reps (MM, Animas, and Accu-Check) and I’ve got to admit that I’m more confused than I was before meeting them. I use about 60 units of insulin right now so I’m a little bit concerned about Animas’ 200 unit reservoir. The other thing I’ve been thinking about is weather a meter that boluses is something that I would use on a regular basis. Also, CGM isn’t something that I’m really interested in right now. So now I’d love to hear what sort of pump you decided to go with and why. Cheers!
