I've been pumping for a long time, 6 weeks after I was diagnosed, which is going on 12 years now. I love my pump and really don’t think I could survive without it. However, I’m really getting tired of the tubing and am ready for a change. My Medtronic is out of warranty so it’s time to get a new pump but my problem is, I’m not sure which new pump I want. As you know, if I want coverage from my insurance I really need to stick with my next pump for a few years.
I’ve read about Omni Pod (and have received a demo). I’ve also just requested a demo from Solo. But I’ve also done some research on some “new” possibilities that may be coming out soon. I really like the Cellnovo pump but feel it could be a while before 1) that one actually hits the market and 2) before they work out all the bugs a new product like this usually has.
So my pumping friends…..what’s a girl to do? Omni, Solo (or any others I may be missing) or just wait it out for a few months and see what pops up?
