I have 2 daughters that use the T-slim. A 17 year old and a 14 year old. they've had it for a little more than a year and a half. They use to use the medtronics for over 6 years. We've been pumping for a long time. The girls LOVE their T-slim. They tell me "it's cool...like an iPhone" The only con I see is that it doesn't pair with any CGM that is on the market today. If you are getting a CGM, then we found the Dex4 works well, but you would need to carry around a separate device to see the readings.

dexcom g4....right. That's what they use. So I would definitely recommend the T - Slim

****can you tell me the reasons they like the t-slim better? I have had my Medtronic for almost 4 years, I'm due for a new one and was thinking of switching to the t-slim. Thanks

****they each went through 2 medtronics pumps with the GCM. We first saw the T-slim at the CWD Friends for Life conference In Florida. they thought it looked "Cool" being all touch screen. As a parent, I like that it can give more accurate doses of insulin. down to the .001 units. My only complaint is the bolus wizard. I don't think it's as accurate as the Medtronics. It doesn't subtract a dosage if you're low.

Ultimately it's their pump. As long as they feel comfortable with it, and they are, I can't complain.
