Re: [IP] Question for the group about choosing a pump....


You should get the pump that you like best, as you will be the one using 
it.  Animas may be newer to the market than MiniMed but I don't think that 
should be a concern as both the company and their pumps have excellent 
track records.  I know many people who love their Animas pumps.

I use a MiniMed because that's the one I'm most comfortable with, but you 
will be the one using your pump.  Get the one YOU like best.
