Anyone use a tandem pump and like it? When I look online all I see are comments about how unreliable it is... I plan to switch from Medtronic+dexcom to animas vibe+dexcom.

I switched from Medtronic to a tandem pump and love it. I was a Medtronic user for 17 years and with the exception of the loading process it has been more reliable. And the dexcom runs laps around my previous cgm. Feel free to ask any questions you have.

Thanks for your thoughts! Especially as an ex Medtronic user, your thumbs up means a lot! I think their touch screen may convince me to adopt them!

Are you still looking into the t:Slim? I live mine although I recently started on an OmniPod to go tubeless. I love being able to run to the bathroom in the middle of the night (sleep naked) and not have to fumble for a pump. The PDM (remote control) is a bit antiquated, feels like a kids electronic toy with a battery from the 80's. Everything has pros and cons I guess.

My son has been on tslim for about 3 years and loves it. Very reliable, customer service is amazing as well.
