    - Giving a standard, slow or mixed bolus on the Ypsopump works faster on the Ypsopump...... why do you find this ? Thanks

    I have a date to ‘trial’ the ypsomed one life pump but will make sure it is a test to see how I get on and not a decision. I wish the tandem t slim was available as I probably would have chosen that model but the health trust has decided not to use it (cost, another pump that dsn need to know how to use , ) reasons I was given ,

    I did the trial on Ypsomed a lovely small light pump , but connection to Bluetooth was variable and at times too along time , but also found the adhesive coming unstuck , plus the app didn’t acknowledge low BG , so clinic has agreed to fund the Medtronic 640G so looking at that pump , but I did like t`slim but clinic has decided not to go with it , back on the vibe and stocking supplies
