It’s been an eternity since i last posted here…
but after 3 happy years on MDI, i am back on a pump. And a new one, it is!
As mentioned in this conversation
there is a new pump on the market, by the small swiss company Ypsomed.
This pump was already on the market here for a year before i switched to it in October. Overall it is a great tool, it is amazingly small, comes with pre filled cartridges (for now only novo log, but you can fill other insulins in empty cartridges as usual). What I love about it is how basic it is, no fancy extras, just what i need.
the only bumps i have had so far were clogged infusion sets. this was pretty frustrating for me in the beginning, as i use steel cannulas, and back on my old pump (medtronic, which i gave up in 2015), those steel cannulas never gave me any problems. what i found out now though, is that these cannulas probably only clog with FIASP insulin. it is very misterious to me, but my doctor confirmed to me that he has other patients with the same problem. So now i have been trying out all sorts of insulins, and will probably switch back to Novolog, or maybe Apidra.
Any other people struggling with FIASP in pumps?
so that is my short story about my new pump
i searched for other posts on this specific pump (but found none), so if i made a redundant post let me know!
I am happy to answer any questions for people interested in this thing
Hope everyone is well
