Dex and Pump

Posted on February 22, 2012 at 10:53am 8 Comments

I think I am at a point where I need a pump.
I have been on Dex CGM for about a year and it has been good.
Which pump will most Dex CGM users recommend?
How do I go about acquiring it?
At the moment, I am 100% covered on my CGM

Howdy olu Oog,
When I started with diabetes so long ago, I was on a single shot per day of NPH. When I got to my teenage years, I went onto multiple daily injections. However, I never liked having to take a syringe to school or into work for a lunchtime injection, thus I rarely did so. My BG control was OK, but not that good. Besides, pumps back then were huge and unreliable. So when my endocrinologist finally said it was time for a pump about 10 years ago, I did a lot of research and I chose Animas. Most of their staff are actual diabetic users!
It takes a good bit of effort to figure out your proper background basal levels (I have 4 different ones through a full day) and to focus in on carb/insulin ratos, etc., but once you have them dialed in, your control will be MUCH better! The ease with which you take a bolus with a meal makes the experience much more satisfying. You still have to carb count and calculate your dosages, but life is definitely better with a pump! To top that, if you couple it with using a CGMS meter, your control is improve even more so. The one drawback is that you really need insurance to cover all of this because it would be wicked expensive with their help. Do your homework before diving in! All the luck, Jack

I don't use a CGM but I had no problem getting the pump approved by my insurance carrier. In fact, I let the Animas rep handle the whole thing. I had already decided with my doctor to go on the pump. I researched pumps, decided on the one I wanted, and contacted the rep on my own (my CDE would have done this for me but I'm a control freak). The rep took care of everything and I had the pump in hand within a month of that initial contact with the rep.
