I had used the minimed pump for 20+ years and recently needed to update my pump and start using sensors (yes I resisted the sensor for far too long!). I went with the Tslim with Dexcom sensor primarily because of the size of the Tslim, the current minimed was even larger than my version and I like to be discreet and keep it hidden.
I have been horribly frustrated with the Tslim - my blood sugars have been all over the map. I have never had so many high readings, even though I didn’t have a sensor previously I still tested 5x a day. And when I’m high, it seems to take an extremely long time and ridiculous amount of insulin to bring me back down. Anyone else have this issue?
The clip is also useless, the clip comes off clothing very easily - i never had that issue with the minimed. And recently the clip came off and I broke a piece of the casing trying to reinstall it. Of course that isn’t covered by Tandem even though I’ve only had the pump for 4 months. I very much wish I stuck with Minimed and dealt with the size.
