    So, I've just been signed off for a pump I am absolutely over the moon!

    I am getting the Medtronic Minimed 640g

    I was just wondering if anyone knows of any good websites for any accessories like pump skins, cases, thigh band etc?

    Any suggestions are much appreciated

    I too have the 640g and the best place for stickers for all pumps, meters and CGM is by far https://pumppeelz.com/ and you can even design your own. Also for good screen protectors and quality silicone pump covers medtronic sell them at their webstore, they make excellent pink purple and blue ones here for the UK https://shop.medtronic-diabetes.co....ategory:Accessories&pn_ps=all&content=product each country has their own medtronic store with similar prroducts, plus medtronic don't charge a delivery fee.

    Brilliant news - i'm on the 640g too :) I got my first belt from Ebay 2 years ago and I still use it now - lots to choose from so it's down to your personal choice.

    I've not had mine very long and scratches irritate me so if you can, I'd get the scratch protector thing!

    Have a look at hid-in.com website, they do a body belt that can be adjusted to wear in different ways.
