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.

Oh man......I won't bore you with details, but I find myself with a big crack on the face of my (first generation) PDM. (I am wondering if this is payback for trying to get Stevie D to think he is the only klutz.) Has anyone else had this happen?

It alarmed once when someone bumped it.. but this time he knocked it clean off and hanging on by the canula and some blood and no alarm...strange.
Comment by elaine peterson on August 23, 2010 at 7:05pm
Yea, the pod doesn't alarm when it slips off, either.
Comment by Lorraine on August 23, 2010 at 5:25pm
Hey Katsz - I don't think the Pod can detect whether it's inserted to skin or just delivering insulin into the air. If it can't deliver insulin it has an occlusion alarm, but not similar thing if it's dislodged. Is that what you mean? That sure would be nice. It would have saved us a couple of ugly runaway highs.

Hi Hockey Mom! Caleb has four spots where he wears the Pod - 2 on his belly and 2 on his back. We rotate among them. He's had great success with the belly. Caleb is always standing when he insert his Pod. That's just always been his preference, but I'm glad to know it may help avoid some issues.
