Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump Reviews
Pros: Does great math. Like the ease to adjust bolts for sliding scale.
Cons: Wish you could manually add BG say from different meter, insurance will pay for pump but not the strips. Should be easier to shutoff sounds. Was in hospital for three days and was on hospital protocol, so disconnected pump, beeped for three straight days every minute! Would like to set a manual infusion change warning. Sometimes occlusion causes need for new site and doesn't reset to a "new" time.
Overall: B+ easily. Have been on lantus, humalog, nph, fast-acting for 36 years. Much better A1c since.By
Pros: Easy to use. Comfortable. Support from everyone is fabulous.
Cons: Hard to fill the unit itself if you have poor eyesight. With reading glasses it works fine. It's actually easier than filling a syringe.
Overall: Wonderful! The support received from everyone at Roche has been phenomenal. I am so happy I chose this route to deliver my insulin.By
