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...

Re: Having Second Thoughts? I'm confused...
Hi Kelly, Katie asked me to weigh in for you some thoughts on the Omnipod. I was using the Animas Ping before I switched to the Omnipod.

Re: Trying the Omnipod
I too am getting the Omnipod tomorrow, and I am as excited! I had the Medtronic minimed and the minilink continuous glucose monitoring system. My insurance paid 100 percent for the pump, but didn't pay anything for the CGM. Medtronic charges $350 a month for the CGM and it is a pain in the rear to...

Q,s about pumps

I looked at the Animas pumps before I got this pump. I went with MiniMed mostly because of how nice and helpful the staff was....
