OmniPod Users

This group is dedicated to giving OmniPod users a place to discuss and share our experiences so that we may grow and help each other "make diabetes a smaller part of our lives."

Please note: the exchange, sale or giveaway of items between members that require a prescription from a licensed practitioner, including insulin pumps and pump supplies, is not allowed on TuDiabetes.

We encourage you to donate supplies to non-profits such as the Charles Ray III Diabetes Association and Insulin for Life, which accept insulin pumps and pump supplies (as well as other diabetes-related prescription items).

You can also approach your physician's office or local medical groups to discuss donating them to those in need of assistance in your area.

I just got a call from omnipod today and my omnipods where shipped off and I should have my first batch early next week. I already have an appointment set up with my CDE Thursday to get taught how to use. I have been waiting for this since shortly after my DX last year

To be sure it sticks well, I swab the area with alcohol prior to applying the new pod...hope this helps.

Has anyone been having problem with the adhesive sticking? The last two boxes of pods that I have had the adhesive near the window seems to slide back several hours after the pod is applied. I haven't changed anything in terms of application.

OK all you Detroit/Metro Diabetics. We're looking to expand our
"D GET TOGETHER's" We've had some small gatherings but want to expand and get some more people. So let me know what day in March is the best for you. We're thinking a Saturday morning might be the best for everyone. Maybe around 10 am. so it doesn't break up the day. I vote for March 17th but any date is good with me. If you have a different date, just post it and we will try and set it for the most convenient for the most people.
Let's get a good crowd together! It's very casual and we talk and share all kinds of interesting information. Whether your new to this whole thing or a veteran like me (36 years) there's so much we can learn.
We usually meet at Starbucks along the I-75 corridor at Crooks
but if there's enough interest we may have to move it to bigger headquarters!!

Annie, when that happens I just put a piece of bandaid over it
Comment by MaiaJane on February 20, 2012 at 1:43am

(and Annie, no question is a dumb question!)

Comment by MaiaJane on February 20, 2012 at 1:43am

Hi Annie! I wouldn't worry about it at all! That happens to all of us (all the time!) and unless there is discomfort, swelling, redness or blood, I wouldn't change your pod. I find that with those open holes I have more air-flow (which for me is a good thing!) keeping the insertion site dry.
If the pod is feeling loose, use some flexifix or other medical adhesive to keep it secure until it's change day!
