Daily Diabetic Supplies

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jay Sep 7, 2012. 34 Replies

I was wondering what everyone carries with them everyday to treat their diabetes (supplies for pump, meter, instant glucose, etc).Continue

Minimed Revel or Onetouch Ping

Started this discussion. Last reply by Josh Mar 23, 2011. 7 Replies

I am trying to decide which of the two to chose as my first pump. I like some features on the Ping better than the Revel and vice versa. Any thoughts, opinions, or information is appreciated.
