Insulin Pump

Pros: While wearing this device I was able to control my blood sugars better than the shots I am currently giving. This device gave me flexibility in my meal times and allowed me to gain some weight back that I had loss due to my diabetes.

Cons: Had a few low blood sugars due to wearing this device.

Overall: My quality of life was better when I was wearing this device.

Accu-Chek Spirit Insulin Pump

Some updates

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.
