"Look into Omnipods. They are a little different in Insurance coverage. You might end up cheaper starting with Omnipods."

"A pump isn't a magical solution to highs or lows. Fine tuning your bolus & basal is successful in taming numbers. You can also try lowering carbs. Smaller insulin doses correspond to less swings."

"I have an extra pump and lots of supplies to go with and would love to get rid of them. Once you get use to it You will love it. It will also cut your insulin intake in half. It's Great!"

"I first would consider changing diet and insulin to avoid low BG. I found the pump did not make a big difference for my control."
