I hate Animas- now time for a new pump, but which? Tandem?
I am not sure if I've ever posted here at all, but I figured it was about time. I'm 29 years old and have had Type 1 for maybe 27 years. I have been on a pump for the past 15 or 16 years so I have a lot of experience. I have had many different pumps and most recently the Animas (OneTouch) Ping...

I am a Animas OneTouch Ping Pumper and I love it and it is truly fantastic! The wireless remote, carb counter and calculator for corrections are all so useful.

Re: I'm thinking of getting a pump
I, unfortunately, can't say much about the Ping, but I've had an Animas 2020 ever since my old Animas pump stopped working. The customer service for Animas is really amazing! When my old pump broke, a rep actually took one of their like "travel" pumps to my dad's office (because...

Re: Animas Pump
I used the MM 522 for about 4 months - and then gave the Animas 2020 a trial run - and ended up with the Animas because I found the screen easier to read (it's larger), more user friendly, was water proof, was smaller in size, comes in cool colours, uses luer lock infusion sets (I have more choice...
