Hello all! I have been trying to get a pump for several yrs now & seems like that day is finally getting close for me. I had decided on going w/Medtronic & started that process going. I was pretty interested in the Accu Chek Combo too, but discounted it because it wasn’t available in the US yet. However, the rep called me yesterday & said that it was approved on 7/18 by the FDA for sale in the US & is expected to roll out sometime in Oct '12. I’d start on the spirit first, but would get the combo once distribution starts. A benefit to this is that the spirit comes w/a back up pump which I’d get to keep once I’m upgraded to the combo. I want to decide soon which pump to go with…Medtronic or Accu Chek?
What r your thoughts on these pumps? Anyone have any info/experience w/the combo? I know it’s been out several yrs now in Europe.
Thanks for any help with this!
