so today when I did a pod change I had to force the insulin into the pod, there was a lot of resistance. a few hours later I get a pod error.
not sure if the pod failing had anything to do with the resistance the pod gave when filling.
has this happened to anyone else? is this the reason why? it was just very odd to me.
Yes, it happened to me twice. It is like it is full of air and the insulin will not fill. I kept trying though. The owners manual also mentions it. Insulet told me not to use a pod that does that. Insulet replaced them.
With the old pods, Insulet told me that if the insulin was hard to inject, call it in as a failed pod.
I also had this happen to me recently. I tried filling the pod with insulin and it seemed to just come right back out. Of course this happened after the first pod I filled had a priming error! All in all though, I can't complain. I've been using Omnipod for about 10 months now and I've only had 4 pod errors of any kind.
That happened to me, but it was not the pod, it was the syringe needle. My husband looked at it, and it was closed up, so we had to get out a new syringe. That has happened 2 x's.
I have this issue using the "new" pods. It seems odd -lots of resistance. I started in August and have had about 10 failed pods - almost always as I am filing or within hours of putting it on. I wish someone else would come out w/ a tubeless pump that really works. Any word on the Jewel Pump release in the US?
