I've been using an insulin pump for about nine years. Has anyone gone off for a while? What was it like? What did you switch to using?

I went one and off for a little while and I just switched over to the pens and for me it was very easy and helped me learn to re-manage my diabetes again.

I'd like to try it out. My main problem would be issues with the insurance company and my Dr, having everything covered.

I went off my pump for about 5 year, due to insurance loss. My diabetes was completely out if control. I would recommend staying on the pump.

I've been off for 4 years! I'm on lantus and novalog with much better control. I was on pump for about 20 years.

I love my pump but sometimes I get tired of using it so I just go on shots for a few days or even weeks and then I'll just get back on the pump it's a quick and easy break that really helps

Does your insurance cover shots?
