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.

Domo, congratulations on the new job, and I am sorry to hear about the misbehavin' pods! Stay strong, and good luck, and (as always) PEACE!
Comment by Domo! on September 2, 2010 at 5:18am
why oh why omnipod, why do you hate me! I started a new job and i got my pods around the same time (moved had to reorder took forever cuz of insurance) first pod on my stomach fell off cuz it lost stickyness, second one was on my lower back and i sat in chair and hit it and OMG it hurt like heck so i ripped it off, now i'm trying my arm and it's hanging on a thread so got a bandage thing on it. I'm kinda missing mdis... just a little will keep on trying till i go threw my 3 months supplies ha!

Thanks, for keeping it Italian (my background)...and I will ask my wife. But, I think you are right...even if she knows she will pretend she doesnt. If you fill me in...I will know whether or not she is lying!

Thanks, Rebecca, I'll do that.
OK Big Steve...just trying to keep it Italian. Ask your wife about the New Jersey girls. (She may pretend to not know.....)
Comment by Rebecca on September 1, 2010 at 7:41am
Elaine, I would call Insulet and at least let them know it's cracked. That way if there's any future damage they will know about it. They may just offer to send you another or if you're really comfortable with it they may not. My fear is that once the integrity of the screen is already cracked more spider cracks will appear until you can't read it anymore. This may not happen but I'd call Insulet and see what they say.

Please, elaine, dont call me "stevie"...it brings back some bad memories for me! NJ gals? who?
Comment by elaine peterson on September 1, 2010 at 6:58am
I had my first, first gen PDM for almost 2 years with no problems. I've had this less than a month and was carrying it in my pocket at work as I was milking the extra 8 hours and needed to tend to the alarm......just like the timely discussion. Should I ask for a replacement or will it continue to work as is? It seems fine.

Stevie....you have embraced "love and light," like the NJ gals. Thanks.
Comment by Rebecca on September 1, 2010 at 6:49am
My 1st gen PDM cracked about every 3 months. I'm not sure how they made the faces of them so sensitive as I could never figure out exactly what ended up cracking it but it definitely cracked a lot. Don't get to stressed though, their policy at the time was to replace them... hopefully it still is!
Comment by Steve D on September 1, 2010 at 6:45am
It's ok Elaine...I forgive you...so the bad Kharma is gone!
Comment by elaine peterson on August 31, 2010 at 8:56pm
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?
