My doc has just prescribed an insulin pump–actually, he first referred me to an endo, but that doc wants 6 weeks of classes, $750 for the initial visit, and doesn’t take Medicaid. So I’ve been referred to the rep who supplies pumps and training directly.
I’ve been on insulin for 20 years and still can’t control bGs, so I am more than willing to try the pump. But I have NO idea what to look for. I read a thread on the topic from January, and saw a lot of opinions. Many like the Animas PING, but I don’t know if there have been any developments I should know about.
I am 65, female, no danger of wearing a bikini, “brittle,” so I think I need CGM. Now using Levemir and Novolog. I have autoimmune diseases–am a bit concerned about site reactions.
What pump or combination of devices should I look at? Thanks~!
