I am considering trying a pump but not sure if I really need it.
I am using Tresiba with Actrapid.
My life has changed dramatically since I tried CGM (FreeStyle Libre 1 with miaomiao 2 with xdrip).
My HbA1C now is 6.1-6.3 and this is a dramatic improvement (compared to ~6.8 without CGM).
However I still don’t feel completely free in everydays life.
Nevertheless I am warned about hypo beforehand by notifications and don’t have hypos at all (or may be a soft one once in 3 months), I still need to carefully use carbs. And usually that is not that bad. However when I cycling for a few hours I must switch almost completely to sweet drinks instead of normal water. Also I wanted to start driving a car and because of this I also prefer to be more confident regarding hypos.
I looked forward to 780g initially and they promised that it will be available in my country this autumn. However now Medtronic is saying that it will be available some time next year.
So, is it worth trying 640g?
I never used pumps before, and my current diabetes compensation is not bad at all. I eat small amount of carbs so hoped that with 780g I can forget about counting/bolusing at all (pump will deal with my small spikes, my boluses are usually not more than 4 units, usually I have 1-2 units), but looks like that will not be a case with 640g, only preventing hypos.
People are writing that Medtronics CGM is worse than Libre.
I set up my xdrip so it notifies me when my BG is more than 9.5 mmol so I can perform action. Can I do something like that with a pump? And can it’s CGM somehow be integrated with smartphone?
