My 2yr old daughter was dxd 2 months ago. We decided on putting her on a pump. Her endo. dr. showed us the Minimed Paradigm Revel and said he would write the prescription. Well I had already been looking all over the internet and saw there are 3 popular pumps. I didn't want the dr. to write me a prescription for Minimed before I got to see the other pumps in person. So we met with 3 representatives and heard about each of the pumps. After trying to weigh out all the Pros & Cons I chose the Animas Ping. I have been waiting a week for the endo. to prescribe the Animas Ping. He calls me and says how much superior the Minimed is to the Animas. I told him all the reasons why I like Animas and he tried to discredit all my reasons. So I did begin to second guess myself but then I thought WOW why is he pushing the Minimed so much. He has pushed so much that now I really don't want the Minimed. Isn't there some kind of Ethics issue that Doctors shouldn't push certain insulin pumps? I know they're Doctors and they should know more than us but I feel it's my daughter + my insurance = my choice. He ended the call with telling me he will talk to the Minimed Rep. and try to get the meter & CGM with the pump for free. Seriously?? He would do all that just to get me to purchase Minimed? Feels like Peer Pressure to the 10th degree.
