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.

When drawing insulin out of the pod DO NOT push air into the pod, anything put into the pod will push the insulin out through the cannula. You should just be able to insert the syringe into the same hole you put the insulin into and draw most of it back out. (I have had a couple where this was a problem but usually it works fine)

Take the syringe and draw it out of the pod. I have been on the Omni Pod since May 2010 and have not had any pods fail.

My son just got an OmniPod and we have had two failures so far. That doesn't bother me as much as the fact that they are both nearly full of insulin. Does anyone out there know how to get insulin out of a pod once it has been loaded?

So fun! The Opad plus, plus, voice activated, next generation. They would so be wishing they were us!

Radar detector? Don't forget the Secret Spy Decoder app.
Comment by SF Pete on July 2, 2010 at 6:25pm
Dude, they have the iPhone. They need to make our PDM a Droid tool: Co-Pilot, Dexcom, OmniPod. That way we could keep our records, make notes and view our data on one piece of equipment. Something like would run, what do you think? About $25,000? I really do have expensive taste.

Dee, that product specifically says it's for type 2 diabetics. I wonder why that is? I'll be interested to see more as they start to market it.
Comment by Dee on July 2, 2010 at 5:46pm
Something possibly in the works. It sounds to me like a pump.
check it out...

Here's the manufacturer's website:

valeritas.com

As you'll read, it's currently under review by the FDA.

It's very exciting.

CAn you picture it? Absolutely EVERYONE would want to be a T1!
Comment by Steve D on July 2, 2010 at 4:33pm
I think INsulet should be focusing on making the PDM a phone, text device, email device, radar detector, GPS, Mp3 player, assorted other functions!
