I got good news this morning that I am signed up for the first pump education class in June to transition my 8 year old son (dx about 6 months ago) to a pump. First class will be just information on all the pump options, etc, but after that we can decide and move forward with a pump.
So I wanted to reach out and get input/information/considerations on the different pumps. The decision basically comes down between the Omnipod or Tandem, and fortunately our insurance will cover either, so there should be no issues there.
If you use a pump, or your child uses a pump, any feed back on the pros and cons to that pump, anything I should consider or quirk I may not have ever thought of, would be so greatly appreciated.
I realize it will be another transition, and likely some bumpy weeks as we change from MDI to a pump, and yet another learning curve, but the impression I get is that it will eventually make our lives much easier.
I’ll leave it at that! Thanks!!
