Hi All! I am facing a possible switch from Medtronic to the Combo. My Medtronic 522 died on Christmas eve with a slow, painful button alarm and after 10 years using Medtronic (both the 512 & 522) I am kind of excited to try something different,
My local insurance in Argentina will only cover the Accu-chek Combo for new pumps (they cover supplies for Medtronic, but no coverage of new pumps any more). As I said earlier, I am not completely heartbroken about this switch, other than the fact that I have about a years supply of infusion sets/reservoirs for the Medtronic.
Have any of you switched from a Medtronic pump (specifically a 522)? What have you liked or disliked about the switch to the Combo?
I think the Combo has some great features, but would have liked to try out the new Medtronic model (called Veo here) with CGM, too.
Thanks for your help!
