So, I met with my endo today and she agreed that a pump would be a good option for me. I am going back in a few weeks to meet with the endo in the practice who does pumps. My control is really good right now, likely because I am still producing some insulin (dx with T1 several weeks ago). I’ve done a ton of research on this topic and have come down to the Minimed Revel and the Animas Ping. Leaning towards the Revel; while I don’t think I would use the CGM immediately, it’s nice to have the option, especially considering I want to get pregnant in the next 6-12 months.
Any insight as to which pump is better? I’m really looking for something that gives me ultimate flexibility around how insulin is delivered. For example, I tend to do intense workouts late at night, and this has made my blood sugars a bit wacky, especially before bedtime. I want something that will allow me the ability to adjust my basal rate on a daily basis. I also tend to eat many small meals throughout the day, something that has been challenging to do on MDI (I end up taking like 6-10 shots each day). I know the pump would really help with this. Do they all deliver dosages in the same increments?
