I’ve been toying with the idea of getting a pump and my doctor and I talked about it today and I finally decided that I want to go on the pump. She told me to come home and research the different ones and figure out what ones I would be interested in. I attended a diabetes seminar this weekend and met the Animas pump representative and she was very much willing to do whatever she could to get me a pump. I am not familiar with Animas pumps and have only looked into Medtronic’s new pump, but the cost is way out of my price range as I am paying cash for this (I don’t have insurance). I was also wondering if you can purchase a refurbished pump at a lower cost? I have looked online and the only site I’ve found, and I haven’t really looked, was ipump.org and that was for children and I’m a little past that age!
I’m really considering the Ping and would like to know what experiences that people have had with it as it is quite an investment for me!
Thanks for any suggestions!
