Okay guys, I’ve asked about pump reccomendations before buuuuut I’m back! I think I’ve narrowed it down to the Medtronic or the tandem with dexcom. I’m really torn right now on what to do. I like that I can do dexcom with the tandem, that the tandem is less bulky and that you can do software updates. I know the Medtronic closed loop system is one of the best though and that Medtronic is a great company. My diabetes care specialist straight up told me that she is super biased towards Medtronic though and that most people she works with choose that pump and I also feel like my endo is pushing me towards Medtronic as well. What do you guys think?? I don’t want to pick a pump solely based on my health team pushing me towards it but I also feel like they know best. What are your guys experiences with these two pumps? Has anyone else dealt with doctors clearly being biased?
Extra note: if I go on Medtronic I have to use the 630 for 13 months before I can upgrade to the 670. Tricare standard I guess.
