    Hi all,
    I'm in the process of choosing a new insulin pump and I'm strongly considering the Ypsopump. Does anyone use this and can provide a review? I'm currently on a Medtronic pump. I like Medtronic, but I was attracted to the smaller size of the Ypsopump.

    Thanks!
    Tegan

    I’m waiting to go onto the Ypsopump but my endocrinologist has now decided that might not be the best pump for me. I’ve used pumps for years but I still get severe hypos and now and then and I’ve no hypo awareness so he wants me to try the Medtronic 670G and use a Dexcom G6

    The Ypsopump is small and works on an icon screen which I really like, I found the cannula a bit awkward but that was to do

    With sight and neuropathy in my hand
    But all in all a good little pump very fast, I tried it for 5 days not enough time really.

    One more things why oh why aren’t the screens in colour I like mobiles.

    Sorry for the gap in the post
