So i have to do some physical therapy on my back hip. And one of the things they do there is the Tens unit- which is where they place pads on your skin that causes muscle contracts. I was wondering if anyone knows if they may cause issues with my pod which is generally worn on my front abdomen.
I have had the Tens unit placed on my back on multiple occasions and whereas I do watch the placement of my pod (I will make sure it is on my stomach or arm), I have not had any issues with the pod and delivery of insulin. If you are concerned, you can certainly call Insulet, but I have not encountered any problems.
I use a TENS on my shoulders with no problems with the pod. Never thought about it before doing this combo, but others I've talked with say it shouldn't be a problem. Never has shown any problems with me.
