Priorities

Comfort

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

  • Because the sensor is under your skin, it won't get dislodged if it gets bumped
  • Optional settings for exercise to adjust treatment ranges for activity with the press of a button
  • Don't need to find a place for pump in active wear
  • Avoiding Highs and Lows

  • Only sensor that vibrates on your skin to alert for high or low blood sugars; alerts work even when smart phone isn't close by
  • Pumps allow different amounts of basal insulin at different times of day and very precise dosing
  • Easy to Use

  • Sensor transmitter must be charged every day
  • Sensor changes far less often than other types, but your doctor must do it
  • Rechargeable pump battery
  • Pump has touchscreen
  • Easy Insulin Dosing

  • Can use sensor trends for dose adjustment
  • More customizable dosing than pens or syringes
  • Fewer Fingersticks

  • Daily fingersticks needed to calibrate sensor
  • Privacy

  • Ability to see sugar on watch or phone
  • Sensor not movable on body
  • Sensor requires regular meter use
  • Touchscreen of pump looks like normal tech device
  • Ability to bolus directly on compatible smartphone
  • Wisdom

    Hear what others who use this device combo have to say

    My tandem I wear on my hip - most people don’t notice it. They notice my Eversense most often and I just explain what is it. I would rather be honest then let people guess on their own.

    I watch the info and data day-to-day, but I leave most of the evaluating to my doctor.

    The more you wear them, the more integrated they become in your life.

    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.
