how can we get an unbiased accounting of pumps/good/bad, when medtronics sponsors this site.  Remove name will go online with some other Diabetes outfit, not funded by mftrs who are only interested in one thing, MONEY. Thought Joslin would be different. FOr those who may want to stufy the Metronic lawsuit, go online With Sailontzs and Kurtz. I don't even have a pump and this is getting deeper!!

First of all it costs money to maintain these bulletin boards and it is nice that Medtronics  is the sponsor.  Second, this board is about the diabetics who post here, not propaganda for any manufacturer.  The users make 95% of the posts, not the moderators.  So you're getting the opinions and experience of actual users/diabetics and that is what we are all about here.  Your post makes it pretty clear that you have no experience with this board and know nothing about what is posted here.

Medtronics helps underwrite some of the costs for maintaining this site, but has absolutely no influence or say over what is posted on the site by either the users or the moderators.

I have a pump-a one touch ping and I really like it. I have actually had it replaced once and my meter replaced twice since having it. They have a great customer service team and I just love my pump!
