Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump Reviews
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
