Hello my fellow diabetic friends - I am in the market for a new pump and looking for suggestions. I am particular drawn to and stuck on the fence between Medtronic 670G and Omni Pod (plus dexcom sensor). I have never used sensors so all of that will be entirely new.
I have solid health insurance so the OOP cost is not a prohibiting factor in this discussion. I simply am looking for the pros and cons of each system.
I have always desired the tubeless lifestyle but I’ve heard stories of adhesive problems; system glitches, etc with OmniPod. On the other side with Medtronic; I’ve been using a pump from there for 5+ years and its now out of warranty and discontinued from assembly. I do not know anyone personally with the 670G so pretty much EVERYTHING there is going to be new to me. I love the integration of auto mode and iuts ability to correct highs and lows through the micro boluses.
Overall - let me have all of your insight and what you think is going to be the best direction. I am a young adult (23) who is relatively active; likes his shares of carbs (edible and liquid) and just looking for the best fit for me.
