Hello everyone! I am new to this forum. Diagnosed type 2 just over a year ago. I am currently on a vGo and 2,000 mg of Glumetza a day. My diabetes doc and I discussed an actual pump yesterday at my appointment.

So I have been researching, and right now I am leaning towards the Omnipod or the Animas Ping.

Looking for experiences with both, likes-dislikes-overall opinions…

Hiya. Just started pumping about a month ago. I am t1. Spent year on MDI. Love the convenience of the pump. I looked at animas but chose roche accu check combo as i have a high deductible insurance and roche gave me a great deal. It also helps that my husband is on the same pump and has been pumping 34+ years. We belong to pumpers support group and have heard a lot of negative comments about omnipod.

Good luck
