Cons: runs and vomiting
Pros: Was the first pump to integrate a sensor and pump together. Has advantage that all is in one box and output in one (or more) cohesive graphs, making the use of the data much easier.
Cons: On the other hand it is OLD technology: their sensor is nine years old, does not work at all for some, and is 50/50 with others. I've had a few times when almost went out from low sugars with NO warning from sensor, had VERY false highs and lows (sensor read over 300 when blood sugar was below 80, had sensor read 72 no matter how much I ate and finally felt better and took blood sugar - it had already risen to over 300!! - sensor still showing 70) Any time I've called in last few years the answer was: you don't know how to use the pump and/or sensor. No matter what I told the customer service person I received the same answer. When I finally wrote a letter to a few top people, they had a person from customer service contact me and told me I was to only call them. They took my story, told me they would handle it, but never went anywhere (surprise).
Overall: it was a great company but no longer worth taking a chance with. I feel they are sitting on top of the pump market and just going with their momentum. Even their latest pump, which they present as a technological breakthrough is based on a technology the FDA has been writing up for a number of years. They have misled and lied to the FDA to the extent that the same week they got approval for their newest pump got a very detailed letter listing all of their problems and giving them a short time to fix them or drastic action might need to be taken by the FDA. Not a really good bet for a medical decision, if one would ask me.aboutBy
