I just started using Lyumjev, and I just love it. I was using Fiasp before, but eventually, it started causing occlusions in my pump. I learned that it’s literally because of its chemical composition, it can crystalize in the cartridge. I went on MDI to use up the Fiasp that I had, and, thankfully, I got a new job with insurance that covers Lyumjev. I’ve been back to pumping and using Lyumjev now since about late March.
I just remembered as I was typing this that I now have a Dexcom G6 and, duh, I can turn on the basal IQ.
I’m stalling with the closed-loop because I notice that because the pump is set for Humalog, it thinks I have basal insulin active in my system when I don’t. As far as I know, Tandem is really dragging with giving us the option to update to faster-acting insulins.
For those of you who are using a Tandem X2 with Lyumjev can you share how it’s working for you? Since I literally just turned basal IQ on now, I’ll get used to that first.
