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.

T-Slim Insulin Pump


Great product, great support, and VASTLY improved A1c
 

Pros: Highly flexible dosing, Touchscreen interface means no scrolling, durable, rechargeable, and top-notch US-based support. The micro-dosing gives me better insulin absorption and more precision with delivery.

Cons: Cartridge fill process and priming could be faster

Overall: I LOVE THIS PUMP. I had issues with the initial style of infusion sets I tried with it (kinked cannulas), but the trainer/educator from Tandem provided me with samples of other styles to replace the ones that failed, and the company was happy to exchange all of my unused sets once I decided on a new style. Support has been top-notch- even for issues as minor as the clip breaking off the case, I had a replacement within 24 hours at no cost and with no hassles. Best of all, my A1c has gone from an 8.4% to a 6.8. I'm up to 6 basal profiles which I switch among depending on weekend/weekday, activity level, and season, and I finally feel like my treatment can keep up with my body's constantly-changing insulin needs.
