Hi everyone - I’m new to the forum, T1D currently using an Animas Ping. I originally went with the Ping because Animas/ J&J had amazing global support. With Animas exiting, I’ve been reading posts for months trying to decide whether to go with the Medtronic 670g or the T-Slim. I think I want the T-Slim but have a few questions. One of my #1 reasons for getting a pump is to have good control for international travel:
- I recently read a news item where it said the Medtronic 670g button can get “stuck” with a sudden change of air pressure preventing bolus delivery so I’m a bit concerned since I fly a lot. Has anyone experienced this? Bolusing during flight is the main thing I need the pump for, so concerned if this is common?
- Does anyone have any experience with traveling abroad (outside the U.S) with the Tandem TSlim where you needed support? How did it go? Just wanting to understand what a small company support is like vs. big global Medtronic support
Thanks for the help!
