We are going to Disney Land soon and I'd appreciate any input on what to expect at the park. I've spoken to the pump nurse at my sons Endo as well as tech support at Tandem. However I'd like to hear about real world experience. My son is 10 so…Continue
I currently wear an Animas Ping and it goes out of warranty in September. I'm really interested in the tSlim. I've had no complaints about Animas, their customer service or their pump. However, money may turn out to be a deciding factor here. My…Continue
