I am an avid backpacker/hiker who just got on the pump in November. My progress has been slow but steady in the right direction with the pump, though the first month was a bit difficult. I’ve had diabetes for about 25 years and my new pump is a Minimed Paradigm.
At any rate, I’ve been searching up and down on the internet for some good advice on where to put the pump while doing activities, particularly the ones I enjoy. Obviously, for backpacking/hiking, I was pretty adjusted to using injections. Needless to say, the pump has added a few complications. This is especially so for backpacking since I’ll have a tight strap around my waste and chest for pack balance and support.
If anyone has any suggestions, input, or advice to offer, I’d be grateful. Thank you.
