I have been on two different insulin pumps before. I love them, but I had some issues. I went into using the pump rough. My blood was out of control and I wasn't healing very well. Every time I changes sites, it would become infected shortly after. Now I have focused all my energy into getting my BG under control, and feel it may turn out better if i try the pump again. The problem this time is we'd have to buy a completely new one, and our finances arn't as ideal as they were last time. My insurance deductable has risen quite a bit. I have a minimed paradime model that they don't make any more. They have the supplies for it, but I have to admit that the thing needs help. It has scratches chips of plastic missing, and probably needs a bunch more maintenance work. What do you think? With a sketchy history and iffy finances, should I go ahead and get a new pump?
