Andy commented on Jigga's group 'Tandem T:Slim Users'
"Estel, are you changing every two days because you use 125+ units per day? I always fill the pump and only change when it runs out. You can change sites and cartridges separately, which helps cut down on how much supplies you go through."

"That's the same way it went at my Endos office. The CDE and I talked briefly about the Vibe and the integrated CGM. But she said that her and my Endo both like the T-Slim."

Estel Hines commented on Jigga's group 'Tandem T:Slim Users'
"Traininq went well today, i had my 2nd inset change and thank gosh the trainer showed me the trick to taking the case on/off easy. I have to change cartridges every two days. I am happy with the tslim so far. No reservations"

Bill H commented on Jigga's group 'Tandem T:Slim Users'
"After today's visit to my Doctor I am going with the T-Slim over the Animas Vibe. She was more in favor of me going with the T-Slim based on ease of use. Talked with the people at Tandem and paid for the Pump & as soon as the RX gets to…"

"Bill H....that's reassuring to hear the T Slim is so popular at the Cleveland Clinic. Good luck at the Endo and let us know what she says about it. I can't wait to get mine, pretty exciting getting my first pump :)"

Bill H commented on Jigga's group 'Tandem T:Slim Users'
"Hello All, Been on a MM Pump for about 10 years now. Seriously thinking of going with the T-Slim. I like the comment below by willne1 that there is no perfect Insulin Pump. Based on my own research I can see that. I also wear the Dexcom G4 because…"

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.
