I am looking at going form MDI to a pump for better exercise BG control. Just a little background. I was diagnosed just over a year ago at age 49. I have been a cyclist for 30 years and went from 3-4 hour 50+ mile rides to struggling to get in a solid hour. My Dr. suggested that a pump will help since I can suspend my basal before riding. As of now I need almost 80 grams of carbs for an hour ride.
Since I am on the Dexcom G6 I am looking at the t:slim X2. But the Omnipod is appealing since it’s tubeless. If there are any clyclists out there that use a pump (espically a t:slim X2) and are able to get in long rides I would love to here some thoughts on if a pump does in fact help with BG control.
