Brand newbie here. Been T1 for 18 years and finally decided to make the switch to a pump. I chose the Animas Ping after researching all of my options. I am very excited to get started!
I have my first training session next Tuesday and my CDE will have me start on saline for a week so I can get to know the basics and see how things go.
Is this a normal part of the transition to a pump? How many here had a trial period on saline and if you did, do you think it was worth it? One reason I ask is because of the cost of supplies, as I really am not that excited to burn through a week's worth of carts and infusion sets for saline use. I'll do it, of course, but am curious how common this practice is.
Thanks for any input, and any advice is greatly appreciated :)
