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 has happened to me. Sometimes a jolt of exercise works...vacuuming or a brisk walk has done the trick. How long have you been on the pods? Could be the seasonal change or hormonal...

Could be possible but would think my sugars would be even higher. Using humalog. Took insulin shot earlier. Did not bring it down

@dishers Any chance you might have a bad bottle of insulin? That's possible. Or just a strange hormonal day. Keep trying. And if the insulin is fast acting it should be out of your system in 6 - 8 hours so be aware of your dosing but don't worry too much.

I have been struggling all day with high sugars, started this morning at 12.2 and has been between 10 and 14 all day, so drained and headache, have not eaten a hole lot today, apples and chicken for supper. Changed my pod around 10 am. Have taken a shot to bring it down. Never experienced not being able to bring my sugars down before, worried if I keep trying I'm going to over dose with insulin lol. Anyone know why or had this experience? Any ideas?

Good for you, fishers. Question: are you using recalled strips or the new ones(exp date > 08/2015)?

Comment by dishers on March 17, 2014 at 3:46pm

I did it again and 17 gave me 5.3

Makes spence thanks again Hank

Better to be middle, so your actual reading should be what your BS actually is. I think they use the range because all meters are not created equal. I found on PDM with the recalled strips that I coded 17 to get the reading that agreed with my Freedom meter and midrange on control solution. I have not used the replacement strips yet, so I don't know what the code will be.

Thanks Hank, I am curious thought why the middle?
