    Diabetes nurse asked me to consider which pump will replace my out of warranty Accu-chek Insight. I've decided on a T-Slim due to Accu-Chek creating additional anxiety by the changes being forced onto Insight pump users.

    I currently use the Accuc-chek Combo pump (I love it! nearly 10years on it and never had any issues) as well as recently started the Freestyle libre 2.
    At my hospital check yesterday they noted they want to 'upgrade' my pump to either Medtronic 780G or Omnipod Dash - no mention of discontinuing the accu-chek. They also noted they wouldnt fund the sensor for the Medatronic which seems to defeat the purppose of the closed loop system! I'm looking into both but not sure about either of them!

    They wouldn't fund the sensor for me 3 years ago either, which is why I went for another Combo.

    Same here but I've got used to the new pump and as it is a new generation one, they've invested in it's development IMO . It is a Tandem Control IQ and works with my Dexcom but doesn't have to.
    The future's in closed looping pumps so hope you can be patient when getting used to the new screen etc. Found it all to be fairly intuitive and I am a low tech girl!

    Have to say that disappointed Combo which I have to say I found fantastic moved over to Insight nobly because of the potential that hasn’t come to fruition.
