Haven't been here for a long time. I'm from New Brunswick, Canada. Our government is now going to help cover pumps for kids. We are trying to decide between a minimed and the animas ping. Does anyone find the continous monitor really helpful? Doctors and nurses here don't seem to think it is really helpful. We are leaning toward the ping because of the remote and it being waterproof. I want to hear what real people think about them and not just what the salepeople want to tell me. Thanks.
