I'm thinking of upgrading my insulin pump soon. I know there is no so many options. I currently have the Medtronic pump but use the Dexcom sensors. Any suggestion on what out there.

I use the Omnipod and Dexcom 7 sensor. I am very satisfied but do look forward to the technology being combined to the point of using one device to control and receive data. I look forward to seeing them integrate it into a smartphone app

The CGM is not interrogated yet but I heard from the Dexcom rep that they are planning on integrating with the tslim that what got me interested in it.

I have also used the omni pod. I did like but I think my Medtronic worked better for me. I saw the tslim but don't know anyone that has used it to see there thoughts.

My 14 year old son just started on the T-Slim and he loves it. Its his first pump so he may be easy to impress but I have found it very easy and intuitive. I love the tracking software it easy to use and upload to and can really help when looking at trends and such. My son does not have a CGM yet but the one complaint I have heard is that CGM data is not integrated into the pump or software yet.

There r quite a few … I use one by the same company as you … Do you want to continue with tubing or would like to go tubeless like the Omni pod ??? Do you want a fancy snazzy pump like the t-slim ??? Just google insulin pumps see what's out there and look at the features and cost and make your decision … I hope u find one you like soon … I just got mine in November if last year … Love my pump …

The Diabetes Forecast magazine had all of the pumps and CGM systems in one of their resent issues. It told about the cost and features and other info. I just don't remember which issue.
