I have been on mine for about 3 months. I had to adjust a few things. I can't use my arms bc I am in college and I bump my arm all the time and my backpack off and on. I have pulled a few out just bc I am an accident waiting to happen. I got some Meflex tap to help give it some more support and its been great
I recently got on the OmniPod. I just got off the saline for practice and am now officially on my insulin. I have to say it is a bit difficult to adjust to but I know it will help my health in the long run. I am trying to regulate my blood sugars and the pod is causing them to go all over the place (we are still adjusting the basal). I cant say your experience will be the same though because you are switching from a pump whereas I switched from insulin shots. I suggest putting it on the back of your upper arm as it has proven (for me) to be the most comfortable. Well I hope you adjust well and I really hope you like it:)
Hey welcome to the Podders! I've been on for about 7 months now..first pump so can't compare to another one but would not go back to shots. Best of luck and hope it works as well for you as it does for me. Take care ~Schmutz
I'm 5 mos in and a new believer! At first I resisted- not used to pump, etc, but it's been so easy and my numbers are so steady. It's been a gift. It took a couple of weeks to get it "dialed in" correctly to the right levels at difference times, but it is awesome now.
Training was absolutely wonderful & easy today. I started my 1st pod @ 11:15 am. Everything is great so far. No more tubing thanks to Omnipod. I like to thank everyone who posted there advice & experiences you guys are the best. It's official I'm now a part of the podder community!!!!! YAHOO!
Good luck with the Omnipod! My son 8 started three weeks ago and LOVES IT!!! is is VERY active so he would not even consider having anything with tubing! (has had diabetes for 16 months now). I have heard nothing but WONDERFUL things about the OmniPod and we LOVE IT!!!
Great to have the support here if you have any questions!
