Well about to do some Air travel for the first time with the Omnipod. So what I want to ask is do you guys go through the metal detector and body scanner with it on. Or do you tell them you want the pat down? I also wear dexcom if that matters. Do you send the PDM and the rest of your supplies through the conveyor? Just a few quetions. Thank you in advance for any input you may have.

I travel alot and just started on the Omnipod - I travel out of the UK to the US and Europe. I have only been asked to "step aside" in Germany - but I always carry a letter from my Prof
Flew a few times since starting on the pod a year ago and have not had a problem. I put the PDM in the backpack with my phone and ipod but I do put the small Omnipod PDM box that it came in into the backpack with their promo lit showing people wearing the pods on different areas of the body. I go through the detector with no problems and they have looked more at the spare insulin syringes and Humalog vials than anything else. Smooth sailing so far.
I have not been subjected to the situation yet, but will more than likely do the pat down until my endo says it is not a problem. I've been traveling for a long time and never had a problem. D since 1958 and still going strong.
