Definitely prefer being on pump alot easier and more freedom with setting temporary basals wouldn't go back.

I totally agree with @stephenmcd the pump is better, though the injections doesn't bother me , I did them for so long, but now I like the pump better

I'll have to agree with both, the pump is definetly better

I think a pump would help with the instability of the disease, which would be a great help to me!

Pump!!! though they say inhaled is better, but for sakes of this question I would say pump, no need of pinching yourself in frotn of others

I would rather be on a pump as I believe it would help to stabilise my erratic blood sugar levels, and therefore reduce the amount of hypo's I have - my blood sugar levels drop alarmingly!

Hi I have used pumps for 16 years out of 36 yrs being a diabetic and started on a patch pump last year and it's fantastic , I'd hate to go back to pens

pump!!! As I already commented in other discussion, it is really easy to use and you have access to your results online, so you can share them with your GP withouth having to go see him in person.
