My real life experience with two smart insulin pumps, Omnipod 5 from Insulet and t:slim x2 from Tandem. I review design and features of these insulin pumps in detail and discuss their pros and cons as it relates to day to day diabetes management.

Please do me a favour and sign up for the survey at the dQ&A website. Here is the link: Your voice can help shape companies and organisations in the diabetes space and make life with diabetes better for everyone. Thank you!

The key benefits of Omnipod 5 and t:slim x2 are their automated insulin delivery systems - SmartAdjust and Control IQ. I discuss how these algorithms work and my real life experience with looping in detail. This video should help you decide which of these two insulin pumps is better from you.
