Hi all, I’ve been a type 1 since 1987 and I’m just now planning the move to a pump. I’ve got it narrowed down to either the Vibe (which I tested for a week) or the Omnipod. I’d also like to pair whichever one I choose with the dexcom G4 or G5. Here are my concerns: One, is the fact that I’m a fairly active runner and mountain biker, and I sweat a ton, plus I live in south Louisiana where heat and humidity are almost a constant year round. This is my main concern about using the omnipod, but who knows, I’m not certain how hard it is to get one of the pods to stay secured to someone who is active and super sweaty.
Secondly, the topic of intimacy while using a pump and or CGM, and I know this is a personal topic, but I’m sure it’s something many single diabetics new to pumps have thought or wondered about, so I’d like to get opinions. I’m a single guy, actively dating, and I don’t know… having a pump or CGM just seems like a killer when it comes to things like intimacy. I’d love to hear others experiences, advice, or opinions. Thanks!
