Re: [IP] Disetronic vs. Minimed - Users input needed please!!

There is really only one answer to your question, which is another 
question. Which do you like best? We can have comparisons and 
arguments and wars over which is best, but what works best for you?  
Call each company and get a loaner pump to try out. It's easy! They will 
provide you with the pump, their favorite infusion sets, and a bottle of 
saline solution. Try each one out, both the pumps and the infusion sets. 
Emulate the programming you would do with each pump. Do your meal 
boluses, your temp basals, your suspends. Try each pump in its clip 
holder, in your pocket. Play with it, work with it. Pretend you are going 
to live with it for the next 4+ years. That is how you decide which pump 
is "Best". You find the one that fits you. Whichever one you choose, 
you have just made the "Best Decision of Your Life".

Enjoy, and Live Long and Prosper
