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.

It should at least be a option to those that have iPhones or droids etc, the wavesense is coming out with a cable that connects to iPhone and then connects to there wavesense app(which I love). I really just want it to be smaller because I haven't gotten exercise quit right with the size, and sleep sometimes bothers me

It's not that far out there. Check out the Jewel Pump which is currently up for FDA approval. It's controlled by a cell phone, smaller, has a detachable reservoir, and somehow holds more insulin. I haven't seen anything about pretty colors but I'd call that a low priority myself. See a review of it here: http://www.diabetesmine.com/2010/06/ada-device-report-new-jewel-pum...

You need to pitch this idea to medical device companies as well as regular software/hardware developers. It's a niche market for sure, but it's also a market that is growing. The more tech savy are really wanting this kind of thing. With smart phone technology becoming so fantastic, why couldn't we control our pods off our phone, someone is already developing an attachment to an iPhone that can be used to test blood glucose. All of your bolus information, BG checks or calibrations since there's no sense in not having the CGMS system signal to your phone could be kept in one location. That would allow you to also keep real-time diary entries. It would be so much easier to tote around all the stuff we use these days. Can you tell I just bought a Droid smart phone and I'm trying to justify being this extravagant? Oh, yeah.

future pod would have a pdm that does everything a cell phone can do. we could pic our own screen saver, try out different apps, play some games :D:D, maybe even play music and make long distance calls to china. The pod itself could probably be even smaller!!! I'd like it to have a different exterior, or something to put over it while i sleep on it. Wouldn't mind different pod colors, maybe be able to get some wifi interent off of it. HA just kidding

Yeah, I know ....
But if it that patch does come to pass, I wonder why it would not be good for T1's as well....

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)
Comment by Joanna on July 2, 2010 at 9:03pm
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.
Comment by PodMom on July 2, 2010 at 8:52pm
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.
