I’ve had Type 1 Diabetes for 18 years. For the past two years, I have used the Tandem t:slim X2 Insulin Pump with Control-IQ Technology. This technology has completely changed my life and how I manage living with Type 1 Diabetes.

I now receive 288 glucose readings from the Dexcom G6 CGM system from previously doing over eight manual blood glucose tests per day! No more pricks! My glucose data is automatically synced with my insulin pump, and Control-IQ Technology adapts my basal rate according to my glucose needs! It will also deliver a carefully calculated automatic correction bolus when my glucose level is high.

There is currently no cure for Type 1 Diabetes but my Tandem t:slim X2 Insulin Pump enables me to live my best life! Although I remain pancreatically challenged, I feel like I have a bionic pancreas, and it’s BEAUTIFUL! I have the lowest HbA1c I’ve ever had.

I love being able to help our customers with these life-changing devices.
