Steve, I've been using U-500 in my Pod since I started on the OmniPod last September. Absolutely no problem. In fact, there was a trial done about a year and a half ago using U-500 in the pods and they got some excellent results.
Gina, U-500 is five times the strength of U-100, so we adjusted my carb to Insulin rate. The absorption rate is slower - it is not a fast acting insulin, so you have a little longer action to take into account. I have found that I have adjusted and don't even think about it anymore. My cost through my prescription plan is identical for a 3 month supply to my old insulins (either pens or vials).
