The insulin pump maker Animas has announced it will no longer be making the Animas Vibe insulin pump in the UK and Ireland – a decision affecting anyone using an Animas Vibe insulin pump.
If you're currently using an Animas pump and pump supplies, Animas will keep providing customer service and warranty support – including pump supplies that are used with the Animas Vibe – through a transition period.
If you currently use an Animas pump, Animas will be contacting you to explain next steps and transition plans.
If you currently use LifeScan, Dexcom or Diasend products, keep using them – you will still get the same customer care. The company Medtronic will oversee the transition period and ensure there's no interruption to the way you usually manage your diabetes.
When you transition to a new insulin delivery system, you should work with your diabetes team to help you decide which one is right for you. If you have concerns, talk to your diabetes team or a healthcare professional. You can also call our Helpline. Or you can contact the Animas Customer Support Team on 0800 028 8039 in the UK, or 1800 812 715 in Ireland, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
