  • Longest lasting sensor
  • Sensor needs to be changed by your doctor
  • Largest pump
  • Tubed pumps have the most infusion sets to pick from

  • Easy Insulin Dosing

    Hear what others who use this device combo have to say

    I can take the sensor and pump off when I play soccer - its fine for me to go an hour without insulin.

    Medtronic is good for reliability.

    At times, I am frustrated with the numbers that I have. I wish that someone with knowledge could help me on days that I am overwhelmed.

    Questions for your Doctor

    Can I try this before I commit to it?

    A lot of provider offices have sample devices you can touch and feel to get a sense of how they work. Some offices even have a trial device you can use for week to see how it works for you.
