"Hi Mary. I've been on the pump for 5 days now. I've never pumped before. And I have to say I love it so far. I use the Comfort 13mm inset. It's a manual insertion. But I don't mind it at all. And it's been great so a…"

Mary Alice added a discussion to the group Tandem T:Slim Users


Hey all! I have just sent in the initial paperwork to get my hands on the t:slim. Woot!Right now I am on the Ping and have used the inset for the entire time. I love the all-in-one design and how convenient it is to have the set, tubing, and inserter in one handy little puck that I can chuck in my purse or desk drawer :)I have been intrigued by the t:set's connection point to the t:slim. Does anyone have pictures of all the pieces of the t:set? (does the tubing come separately?How do you insert…See More

Welcome home!
Take a peek at some the groups when you get a chance. Just go to the top of your page, and click on "Groups". Once in, you can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the space provided. Take in some of the blogs/discussions and take a look at the Canada Embassy page as well, by going to the headings in the aqua coloured box in the upper left hand of the home page. Click on "DHF Grassroots". Once you're in scroll down, click on "Canada embassy", and voilà! The house in the photo is where Dr. Frederick Banting lived and had his medical practice in London, Ontario, Canada...before going to the University of Toronto to work on diabetes research, and ultimately the discovery of Insulin.
Hope you find the support and information you came looking for. Here is a useful link to get you on your way:
Take care....and keep in touch!
