I was diagnosed with extreme brittle paroxysmal type one diabetes. I was on every other pump. Fighting all day every day to get decent sugars. I fought for years. In high school I was constantly looked down upon from teachers who compared me to the other diabetic. I tested more than 15 times a day. There was never a pattern. I was all over the place all the time. Then I switched to the t:slim. Within a day I was stabilized. In less than two months I went from 8.7 to 6.9 a1c. Get it- you never look back. It's the correct decision for you to make. It works for everyone who uses it period. The safety features are by far the most advanced. It has saved my life. I am free from diabetes. My life is no longer controlled by the d. My quality of life has never been better. I'm free from suffering. I can now go to school full time and work. Simply put I'm now normal! No more suffering. I'm stable. The most brittle case in my area which has more than 3,000 type ones is now one of the most stable. I'm free GET THE T:SLIM. IT WILL GIVE YOU FREEDOM YOU DID NOT KNOW EXISTED!

I have a question, I'm on a minimed it has never ever failed me, I've heard that the tandom fails and you always are having to recover. Is this true?

****TSlim is my first pump after having diabetes for over 10 yrs. I went from 12.4 to 9 on a1c. I also got a Dexcom G4 cgm. Without the cgm I feel like I pilot flying blind. I have the TSlim to be easy to use like using a any touch screen phone on the market. Easy to setup and change too.
