I live in Australia they say we will not be affected but Iam a bit sceptical about that because if they are closing in America can’t see them last in a Australia I have gone back to needles at the moment had been on Animas Vibe for three years very happy with it but having better result back on needles my diebetic educator is going to kill me what do you think👏🏻🙏

I am impressed that you are doing better on needles. I can't imagine going off the pump. The flexibility just works in so many ways for me. I also think Animas will not stay active in Australia or Europe, If the finances don't work in the US then they probably don't work anywhere.

My Ping warranty is up in just a few days. I was working with animas on getting a new one but will likely go the Medtronic route now.

It looks like Medtronic will update our pump free in the spring. They just came out with the 630g. That’s what they will be sending us We can still get Animas supplies until 9/#### supposedly

Not me, I had a bad experience with tandem sales rep and management previously. Although many people seem happy with that pump.

When I got notified by accu-check that they would also close their pump therapy I change to omnipod and is working super great.

****. How is it working for you that you have to recharge the battery on the Tandem? I love that the battery on the Animas pump lasts several months and is a very available battery.
