Hello, I've been diabetic several years, MDI for about 6 years and just started using an Animas Ping a couple of months ago. My last two Ha1c were a consistent 6.4 on a sliding scale of Apidra and 60 units of Lantus.
A couple of months ago, I was working a very sedentary job with a very private office, not much interaction with co-works, could come and go as I pleased, which was great while I got familiar with my pump.
Thankfully, I accepted a new job offer and now I am on my feet probably 5 hours a day in a front desk type roll, where there are people coming and going and it's more difficult to get away.
A couple of things, because I'm moving so much, my pump keeps falling off of me, off my pants, out of my pocket, I ripped a set out, too. It just seems more of a nuisance than a help. Changing sets in the car on my lunch, worrying about batteries, am I going to have enough insulin in my pump to get me through a four hour meeting, stuff like that.
My thought is to see what my next A1c is in a month or so, and decide if I want to stay with it or go back to MDI.
Are there others who were MDI, tried the pump, and then went back to MDI? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
