Have you switched from the Animas Ping to the Tandem t:slim?

My Ping warranty expired a few months ago. I am ready to get a new pump. I loved my Ping, however my favorite feature has been the meter remote. As this is will not be available on the Vibe, I don't…Continue

"I have a t:slim, just started a few weeks ago, and my first pump, did MDI for the past twelve years. I'm extremely happy with it overall, I played with a few other pumps but haven't actually used any others. The lack of reverse correction…"

"The Ping is their older model that is linked with a meter remote and the vibe is the newest model that is linked with the Dexcom. Just like every other pump they can only link one device such as a meter or a Dexcom. The Animas is waterproof in the…"

"Have you called Animas to see if you can still purchase the Ping? I know that I am very happy with my Dexcom4 but prefer to have the separate devices. I don't use the remote at all - don't like the Png meter - too big to fit in my pants…"

"Can you explain for us less informed non pumper the differences between the ping and vibe? I only know thst the vibe can be integrated with dex on-- though not entirely sure what benefit thst even provides except perhaps not having to carry the…"

"For me, I've learned that if I subtract from my carb dose when I'm low or "lowish" I will go high. In other words I need the full bolus for the carbs i consume regardless of blood sugar. I compensate for lows by either treating…"

Annabella replied to Phyl's discussion 'Have you switched from the Animas Ping to the Tandem t:slim?'
"It means the former. It also takes into account IOB if you are below target, & subtracts insulin. It is only a suggestion you can enter the original carb dose if desired."

Terry replied to Phyl's discussion 'Have you switched from the Animas Ping to the Tandem t:slim?'
"I've seen the term "reverse correct" before but I'm unsure of its actual meaning. Does it mean that it will subtract some insulin from a calculated bolus dose because you're currently below your target BG? Or perhaps a…"

Have you switched from the Animas Ping to the Tandem t:slim?

My Ping warranty expired a few months ago. I am ready to get a new pump. I loved my Ping, however my favorite feature has been the meter remote. As this is will not be available on the Vibe, I don't think I am interested in it. Also, when I am wearing my pump inside a dress, I don't like not being able to keep track of my CGM. With the Vibe, I lose the ability to remotely bolus and see my CGM when wearing my pump inside my clothes. The options I am considering is getting a new Ping or the…See More

I am kind of shy but I have met other online diabetics across the country before. We are both hooked up with acidrock23, and he has suggested before about meeting up. I have been Type 1 for 44 years and have never belonged to a group.

Hi, Phyl, and welcome to TuDdiabetes. I am also a type 1.5, living in Roanoke, Virginia but from the suburban Chicago area. Born & raised in Elmwood Park, lived in Elgin, Carpentersville, and West Chicago. Sister-in-law lives in Batavia, so I know the area well.

If you go to my page, you can see my "info", which is not a bad idea here. I'm T1. I think there's at least 5 or 6 of us around here, just Naperville/ Bolingbrook/ DuPage county area but we don't have a group or events set up just yet.

I am always interested in getting together so if someone puts something together, I would like to hang out! Unfortunately, I am 1) lazy and 2) still fumbling around here so I haven't set it up...

I misdiagnosed as a Type 2 at 45 and then got super sick about 6 'months later. Inter nest thought I had Graves. Then I found yet another endo who put me on insulin but was sure I was a type 2 who had blown out my pancreas and never tested me for T1. I wasn't convinced because I knew how quickly this came on -- and finally found a great endo who not only tested me for T1 but also found two other autoimmune problems. I was 47 when that proper diagnosis finally happened. I'm 48 now so we are really similar in our duration with this disease. I see you are in Naperville. I live in Philly but have worked out of Lake County for the past few year -- most recently in Libertyville.
