    Best you choose yourself rather than go on someone else's recommendation.

    Why don't you discuss with the DSN/Consultant about the pro's & con's of each pump and then decide, ask them which pump has the best feedback form patients who use them.

    I tried the omnipod about a month ago and I loved it, I'm getting it in about a month. I would definitely recommend trying it, it was really simple to use and you couldn't even tell it was there!x

    I have been on an omnipod for about a month now, and love it! It is a lot of hard work to start with, and very tiring, but it has made my control a lot better already. I forget it is even there half the time! If you have any questions, feel free to ask x
