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.

The day I had my training it was like Christmas. :)

Yea!!! The only bad part about getting the starter kit was having to sit and stare at it everyday until I was trained to use it.

My starter kit ships today!! :)

It looks like it was an issue with older models, as there are some users on the Minimed group that have experienced the same problem. Good to know it has not affected anyone on an Omnipod, I'll be getting mine shortly :)

OK, I see. Huumm... that's a tough one. If I were to say anything about it, it would be a guess. I don't really know what could cause that. I'm sorry for your friend's mishap.

Gil,
The "lock" is a key pad lock, so all buttons are inactive. The pump still delivers insulin in the mode.

Hi Kati,
What is a "Lock" in MiniMed pump terms? Is it like a "Suspend" for the OmniPod? I'm trying to understand this event a little better. Thanks!

Never heard of anything remotely like that happening with OmniPod.
Comment by MaiaJane on October 27, 2010 at 5:50pm
Not that I know of, Kati!
Comment by Kati * on October 27, 2010 at 5:49pm
I ran into a fellow minimed pumper the other day, who had informed me his pump had given him a large amount of insulin while he was sleeping (apparently he had it on lock) He wound up with a bg of 20, anyone heard of this happening with the pod?
