I’m staying with what I have until warranty goes out, Then will see what options are out there.
The PING (Animas) will currently work on the Mac platform and Windows. Giving us CHOICES in our preferred computer OS’s we wish to use. I would like to see CGMS integration, which is rumoured to in later 2009-2010, with the Dexcom system.
The Omni-Pod looks cool, but I can’t fathom throwing away a $35.00 ‘pump’ after one use, and if I lost the PDM, I’m SOL. I wait for iPhone integration/Mac compatibility, I wait for CGMS integration like I have with Minimed, and it would be cool enough if the pump software worked on the Mac as well as Windows. I have a partition of my HD for Windows VISTA JUST for the pump upload. How bass-ackward is that? Also, the Omni-pod uses Freestyle strips and I can’t see well enough to make them work for me.
I used to use Disetronic, it was quite nice to have a back up pump, but they’ve stopped that, so it doesn’t matter anymore based on that alone.
I use the accu-check Compact Plus, as the hoped for aviva nano is still no where to be seen in the USA yet. For the Minimed pump/CGMS, I use the One Touch Ultra Link. It’ll be the PING or the next generation of Minimed for me so far.
