First a little background info.
New to tudiabetes as of today 5/15/09.
I’m a Type 1 (40 yrs.) Currently using Lantus/Humalog regimen and have never pumped.
I count carbs and test and dose as needed.
I experienced a “hypo” episode and awoke to find myself in the hospital.
So that said, I decided to teach the “Old Dog” some “new tricks”.
I have been using the Dexcom Seven+ CGM and am pleased so far. (3 weeks and counting)I’m aware that Omnipod/Insulet and Animas are supposed to be working with Dexcom on an interface for their pumps, but time will tell and see where these associations lead to.
The research I’ve done leads me to the Omnipod (new version) that will ship in June.
The Animas Ping was the other option I’d considered but tubeless was the deal maker/breaker.
I know from my “due diligence” that ultimately each of us are unique and certain features/benefits will be what brings us to our decisions.
So the discussion/question is:
The Omnipod won’t be available until June, so any advice, ideas or concerns that I might have overlooked would be appreciated as I have time to make a change.
Thanks to all.
