    Which is the best insulin pump & CGM

    Hi,
    I'm T1D and 7 weeks pregnant. Currently I use insulin injections. I am planning to switch to pump along with CGM. Can you guys recommend some?
    TIA

    I know people like the dexcom, but medtronic has been getting better. As for pumps, I always liked my medtronic but my suggestion to you is to talk to the local reps and see who you feel most comfortable with (also who your insurance pays for as well).

    They all do the same thing (I.e. Deliver insulin in small doses) so it really comes down to the features that appeal to you. A quick run down of the main features:
    Cordless - omnipod
    Touchscreen- tandem t:slim
    Integrated Dexcom - tandem, animas
    Integrated CGM/"Artifical Pancreas" - Medtronics
    Here is a nice page with tons of useful info:

    Good luck! I personally love my dexcom and t:slim and when the X-2 is approved for the G5 I am going to upgrade but until I don't mind the separate devices.
