    I am considering the Tslim but remember hearing of air bubble issues. Is that a problem for TSlim users or just part of the learning curve. Iff the later, any tips on shortening the curve?
    Thanks

    No issues here, either.

    We've been using the t:slim since August and have had no issues with air bubbles.

    Jumping on the no bubble bandwagon. My daughter's had the t:slim since August - no bubbles.

    We also have not had any problems with bubbles. Despite people's concerns over the reservoir filling, I find it much easier to fill than our previous pump. No complaints.

    I thought that tslims design was to not have bubbles?

    Some people have issues with bubbles near the luer lock. We don't have one yet but my assumption is that the design of the luer lock being away from the pump just allows you to see bubbles more clearly than a traditional pump. There is a Tslim Facebook group that people have posted their solutions if the bubbles are a problem. It really seems like most people do not have any problems though.
