[font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"]Great update on the t:slim - and the recent panic that went thru' the D-OC when the company stated that there would be no return policy. Apparently, according to Bernard Farrell from [url=/iframe.cfm?myurl=http://www.diabetesdaily.com/]Diabetes Daily[/url] - he paid them a visit when he was out in California - and got some good cold hard facts - that will make potential clients (USA only) breath a sigh of relief. It's still in it's infancy as Bernard points out. To read more of his interview and personal views - check out his blog post at this [url=/iframe.cfm?myurl=http://www.diabetesdaily.com/voices/2012/06/tandemvisit-returnpolicy/#comment-13223]link[/url] .[/font]

[font size="2"]Here is something I never asked when inquiring into this new pump - which is available to Americans at present.[br][br]According to Michael Hoskins from Diabetes Mine - it is BUYER BEWARE with the purchase of this pump! You cannot return it back to them - unlike other insulin pump companies that are out there.[br][br]So, I'm rethinking my excitement over this pump - sad to say - and am sure others are feeling the same way. Please, [url=/blogs/Annas_Blog/Part_1_Salvador_Dali_and_George_Michael]George Michael[/url], my current Animas 2020 pump, without any warranty, please last longer then the last two pumps I've had over the 4 years - that had s/w problems - I can't afford another pump for at least a few years.[br][br]To read more of Michael's column - go to the following link - [url=http://www.diabetesmine.com/2012/06/buyers-beware-tandem-says-no-returns-on-tslim.html/comment-page-1#comment-570351]http://www.diabetesmine.com/2012/06/buyers-beware-tandem-says-no-returns-on-tslim.html[/url][/font]

[font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"]I am so excited to see that this pump is finally out on the market (in the USA only - hopefully Canada approves it one day for Canadians to purchase). I've been watching it's development over the years with anticipation (yes - I love new medical gadgets that will help me attain perfection in my control of diabetes).[br][br]All I can say is - WOW - very slim design - holds 300 units of insulin - colour touch screen the size of a credit card - very Applish design in my eyes - it's just soooo cool (can you tell how excited I am).[br][br]More information is available online at [url=http://www.TandemDiabetes.com]www.TandemDiabetes.com[/url], or by calling 1-877-801-6901. Tandem's sale team is available Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. PDT to accept orders.[br][br]If you want to get a little preview of the pump - go to the following video [url=http://medgadget.com/2012/06/tandem-tslim-touchscreen-insulin-pump-now-on-sale.html]link[/url] - [url=http://medgadget.com/2012/06/tandem-tslim-touchscreen-insulin-pump-now-on-sale.html]http://medgadget.com/2012/06/tandem-tslim-touchscreen-insulin-pump-now-on-sale.html[/url][/font][br][br][br][p=text-align: center;][img]http://ams.body1.com/assets/FatCatAnna/tandemtslimpump.jpeg[/img][/p][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"][br]UPDATE: Spoke with Enid at Tandem - and the cost of the pump (without insurance) is $4,500 USD. She found that a tough question to answer - since most Americans go directly thru' their insurance - and don't know the actual cost of what they are using. I told her I've often noticed this with Americans - that they have no clue as to what they pay for their medical health - if they compare the actual cost of what they use - over what they pay in insurance. I've been put on the mailing list for updates on their insulin pump products - and hopefully it'll be available for purchase outside of USA in the near future. [/font][br]
