I’ve had diabetes for almost 9 years. Was diagnosed July 2007 and put on an Animas pump August 2007. Animas pumps are all I know. Having to change anything in the routine of a person with diabetes is challenging but changing the tools you use every single day to keep yourself healthy can be extremely stressful. As we know, stress has a harsh effect on your blood sugar. Forcing patients who are familiar with the tools they have to change to a one-size-fits-all pump they are unfamiliar with is dangerous to their health.
