Recently I have had pumps on my mind. And not women’s shoes; insulin pumps. My slightly disappointing experience with the Endocrinologist really sparked my interest for these. The doctor gave me a few pamphlets on different type of pumps, except the one I have been looking at. I think a pump would be something I would be willing to try out and I could see myself enjoying the change in lifestyle it brings (less shots!). But ultimately I do not know which pump to pump.
They all look very interesting and have a bunch of cool features but this one is easily my favorite. I don’t know if you would ever call a pump sexy (what with the 90’s pager-esque aesthetics and the hose connected to your abdomen), but this pump is fairly sexy. It is touch screen and reminds me of an iPod/iPhone that just happens to run your insulin dosing.
I am still researching different pumps in terms of features and useability. And they all seem to have the main crucial features: bolus and basal management. But judging based solely on looks, the Tandem is by far the best looking (in my opinion).
If you use a pump which one and why? And if you do not use one, why not?
Do you know anything about the Tandem: good or bad pump?
