Hi Kevin. Soon to get my POD (1st pump ever). I was told that 150 units are ok to put in the POD. How are you doing now in November after the first few months? Are you still happy w/your POD? Have a great day.
Ellie, I too will be starting on the OmniPod which is also my first pump.
I am excited and nervous at the same time.
I'm meeting with the trainer tomorrow morning to get things started. I have all the supplies that were sent in the mail.
When will you be starting?
I use just above minimum and it seems to me that the pod double beeps after a set amount of time rather than a set amount of insulin. I fill to between 80 and 90 units and I usually have to wait a few seconds after I'm done filling before the pod double beeps. That causes a bit of anxiety now that I've been using the pod for awhile and get the occasional pod that fails to double beep.
