where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Hi everyone, I'm looking to get a new pump (currently using OmniPod, not happy with performance). Any recommendations or info on t-slim g4 or animas vibe?

I have the Animas Ping and I love it....When the warranty is up I still haven't decided if I'll get another ping or go to tslim....I love the remote feature of the ping and am hesitant to give it up. but I think either company is a solid choice depending on which features are most important to you

I've used all of them for a trial. I spent two months wearing different pumps in March, April and a bit of May. I ended up staying with the Medtronic pump, but going with the Dexcom for my CGM.

I don't see a point of getting pump with integrated Dexcom. Now with G5 what is the point? Regarding pump, they all have similar performances , it's all about your personal preferences. I have used ALL the pumps, but Omnipod is best fit for me.

Thanks for the suggestions. I currently have the Dexcom g4 so I would rather have it integrated. I've had other medtronic and animas pumps in the past and like to try new things, so maybe the T-Slim...

I have a minimed if you are willing to trade?

Just a heads up inter garters pumps can't be updated so they will always be behind when it comes to cgm technology. Dexcom has updated 4 times this year. This is why you only get locked in for 1 year. Going with integrated pump u are locked in for 4 years. Major downfall.

Have you been able to get a new pump yet? I am off on Buffalo New York. I would like to reach out more to talk further with you. I have been on a pump for 12 years now and have went through wearing two out of the three major brands. Personally T slim rocks and cannot wait till I can get it.
