I've come full circle...
I started out with Metforum, almost 20 years ago, which appeared to be a random number generator. That was VERY frustrating. I moved to insulin -- multiple daily injections, but kept having problems with lows.
I switched to the Animas Insulin pump which I loved, but my insurance wouldn't cover so I ended up with a Medtronics pump. I lost my endochronolist, as he retired, and it took a while to get a new one. During that time, Medtronics refused to upgrade my pump since I was a) Type 2, and b) didn't have an endo. It still worked but wasn't the one I thought my insurance had paid before. It certainly wasn't according to their documentation.
When I found out that the Omnipod was covered by pharmacy benefits I switched to it. I really like it and keep some supplies at the ready.
I am also on Ozempic and have been a few years. I was first on Victozia but my current insurance covered Ozempic. Oddly enough my back surgeon suggested I try Wegovy, which as I mentioned early, is just a double dose of Ozempic. I tried it but didn't find much difference.
Right now, with my weight loss, diet and exercise, I'm down to 12 units a day so I'm using the InPen. I went to it because I need an app to keep track of my injections and to calculate how much insulin I need.
I'm also using the Dexcom G6 system, which I have been using since I found that it too, is covered by my pharmacy benefits. I started with the G4 system.
I have a few other tools at my disposal -- since I am in Texas and carry the InPen everywhere, I am using the Vivicap to protect it from heat. It does make the pen bulkier, but at the same time easier to find in my bag. If you need this, use this referral link: ViviCap Referral link
I also have the version that works with my Ozempic.
I just started being an ambassador for Vivicap, which is an interesting program.
So currently, I am on insulin and Ozempic. I use an InPen and Vivicap to keep my insulin the proper temperature.
