    Hello diabuddies,

    As some of you know I've been considered for an insulin pump, which is the Medtronic 670G. So I wanted to know is there any accessories that you highly recommend that every pump user should have? Like to wear in bed? or to wear when going out? or to wear when going to the gym?

    I wear a fab pump belt 24/7 to pop the device into, so it's comfortable for sleep, exercise etc, I get mine direct from pouchforall.co.uk and get a new one each year - others are available via Ebay, but I find after trying others that these are the most comfortable and long lasting.

    Great news btw Mei :)

    The only accessory I have for mine is a pump belt and thats just for sleep. I bought a cheap one off Ebay first, have now put an order in with my son to get me one from Hid In for my birthday at the end of the month
