"Mario Thanks for the reply. I love the t:Slim itself. Never had low GS issues. Had programed 4 different times for hormone release overnight to have good morning BS. My main issue more than anything else was just the time involved with inset /…"

"Brian, It never had any feature to suggest carbs for a low bs. Also, to record a bg all you do is input the bg and then exit. I do it all the time as do all the others who use it so not sure how you were not told this or didn't read it in the…"

"FWIW, I got my t:slim about 1.5 years ago and within six months switched back to my Deltec Cozmo. I wrote up all of my issues with the t:slim for them (about 10) and never heard back about whether they will be addressed or not. If my BS is low and I…"

"Mario, I also have no issues with bubbles. I make sure not to have air in the syringe prior to filling, and also let some back pressure move any last air out of the cartridge before pulling the syringe out of it. When the luer lock is being primed,…"

"For what it's worth, I had issues about 4 months in, but come to find out, it was only after they recalled the cartridges 9 months after that that I started using it again. I've used it for well over a year now continually and have had no…"

Mario commented on Jigga's group 'Tandem T:Slim Users'
"Jimmy, Your decision is already made but I don't see how you have these issues if you have had it for more than a month. Priming the line is dependent on the length of the line itself. I use the short tubing and only prime 16u and it…"

JiMMy commented on Jigga's group 'Tandem T:Slim Users'
"I've had no issues at all with the t:Slim pump. But I'm giving up on it. Long setup and priming process. Fighting to prime the line and bubble issues. I'm moving to the Asante Snap pump. Fast priming with no bubbles. Very fast change…"

"For what it's worth, in two years I will be switching over to a Tandem pump, due to the policies of Animas. As for those just starting up at TuDiabetes, leaving a bad review, and leaving; that's a familiar "poop and scoot" theme…"

"In fact, one of the selling points is that the micro delivery technology lets it be meaningfully *more* accurate."
Wednesday
niccolo commented on Jigga's group 'Tandem T:Slim Users'
"Yep. One can not like the t:slim because of slow priming, or too many confirmation screens, or other such issues, but to accuse it of being unable to accurately deliver insulin is kind of hard for me to get my head around. This is a multi-thousand…"

Andy commented on Jigga's group 'Tandem T:Slim Users'
"Niccolo, I was wondering the same. They did have other posts online here, though not too many. I hope people understand that we aren't all perfect at managing diabetes sometimes, and pumps may seem frustrating as part of that process, but…"
Wednesday
niccolo commented on Jigga's group 'Tandem T:Slim Users'
"There's something off about these posts. People don't stop using pumps because their A1Cs are high for years. If a pump really is delivering the wrong amounts of insulin, that would be apparent very quickly, and it would be a huge deal,…"

Andy commented on Jigga's group 'Tandem T:Slim Users'
"What's happened to this thread? People inexplicably think their pumps are failing them? If there's a problem with the pump, you should definitely contact Tandem. Changing to an old pump isn't going to give you a different dose..."

"I have to say that after 2 years of roller coaster rides day and night with the tslim I am also abandoning it. My AiC has never been this high in the 12 years pumping so it is no longer healthy to wear it for me. I was very excited about the…"

Jay, it happened again. That's 6 resiviours it failed on. Tandom replaced the pump and so far so good over the last week even with the carriages from the lot that was failing. Another weird thing is my sugars have been dead on good since I started the new pump. Makes me wonder if the one that was giving me loading issues had more than just that wrong. Well good luck and hope you contacted them.
