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 love Omnipod, and everything is moving along since I started around 6 weeks ago. My biggest issue is that I keep knocking my pods out of place, usually being clumsy, but also in some of my normal everyday activities, like putting baby in carseat. Went through 4 last week. I'm self pay, so this is really becoming an issue. Anybody know of some extra protection I can apply for this sort of thing?

I've had my share of pods screetch. Definately not a fun sound. And its always fun trying to run around the house to find a pin to poke in that hole on the pod to shut it up. But still I love the Omni and would not give it up.
Comment by FHS on October 23, 2010 at 8:27am
Yeah Elaine, definitely not what I would call a fun sound. It was some kind of insulin delivery issue. I gave the Insulet rep the code but she didn't know what that particular code meant.

I've learned to like the clicking sound the pod makes when it is properly delivering insulin. It's almost like a pod purr.

We get our entertainment where we can, Anngelia! F's screech doesn't sound as fun, tho. I wonder what that was all about if it wasn't an occlusion.....maybe communication?
Comment by FHS on October 23, 2010 at 4:58am
I tried the pod on my lower back. It seemed to be doing fine but as soon as I bolused, I got the screeching pod sound. I checked the alarm and it wasn't an occlusion. I called Insulet and they will send a replacement.

Elaine I want a pod that makes cute lil chirping or beeping sounds. Might as well have some entertainment with you diabteres stuff. ;-)
Comment by Michael on October 22, 2010 at 7:27pm
I'm pumping! First full day on the omnipod and I love it. I should've done this a long time ago. I did hear the "train whistle" last night when I was sound asleep and my omnipod specialist said that was really strange as I have no alerts. She wants me to call omnipod and speak with them about it.....
Comment by Janice on October 21, 2010 at 8:29am
@Elaine...you definitely are not. I actually prefer the more musical sounds from my pods.
Comment by elaine peterson on October 20, 2010 at 3:23pm
I know I am not the only one noticing varied sounds coming from our pods as it gets its work done or alerts us to danger. The usual beep or chirp, can be louder or sometimes just a click. My current pod "toots" like a tiny toy train....the little pod that could. It is making me laugh everytime I hear it.
