Today I had lunch with friends and I forgot to give my insulin at the meal. My next stop was the bank. So I'm standing in line to get to the teller window when I remember that I did not give my dose. I just get out my meter and input my carbs and like magic with a few button presses I'm good to go. I usually test first etc. but this worked so great at the time. I'm super pleased with my pump choice. What do you like/dislike about your choice?

Hi LisaNC

I'm on the pump for about a month now. The Combo is my first pump and I'm so in love with it! I don't know how I survived so many years without a pump! The killer feature of Accu-Chek Combo for me is the operation of the pump through the meter.
Almost all the time the pump is in my bra between my breast. If I have to take it out every time I have to give a bolus it would not work. Here in Brasil we have access to just 2 brands of pumps: Accu-Chek and Meditronic. The Bluetooth communication of the monitor with pump was definitely the reason I opted for Accu-Chek Combo

So far I don't dislike anything at all. But maybe it's because I'm love blind!
:-)
