I have no suggestions! Sorry. You certainly more about this than I do, so I wish you good luck. I'm wondering if you're the only member here on a pump.....

Hope all is well. Got a lot of snow?

Looks like it is between Animas Vibe Plus and Meditronics 630G leaning toward Animas has it can be integrated with Dexcom 5 which got the approval from Health Canada to be used to as a tool for figuring out insulin dosage no more finger pricks but our Provincial government is way behind with Diabetes technology which is who I get my funding from confused

go with what works best for you. u know yourself better than anyone else. ping sounds positive. some countries are slow, australia included, funny since we have become the fattest nation per captia. funding globally into diabetes research needs a big jelly been of philanthropic support and people to be better educated on food, diet, and the biggie, complications.

Seems somebody at Animas was not happy with me when I said I am waiting for the new technology smilewinkgrin I guess they wanted to make a quick sale, talked to my Diabetic nurse today and informed her of my decision she had no problem it, since she needs 3 A1C in a 12 month period to apply for funding we decided not to do one in April since I see my doctor in May by the way my A1C was 6.2 which is great for me yeah
