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.

I don't know about anyone else's but my PDM beeps at me every 10 minutes I don't have an active pod. I can't remember if it did this before my first pod but I know it does it now. Just something to keep in mind if you set it up before you're ready to activate a pod.
Comment by SF Pete on November 3, 2010 at 12:56pm
You won't turn on the pod unless you activate it. To do that you have to do a couple of very specific things. I don't think you are in any danger of messing up any of the pods. The PDM won't do anything to the Pod unless you tell it to.

Absolutely...I ran through all of the features well before my training which was a month later. It's been a while but, I thought that it was suggested that you familiarize yourself with the PDM prior to initial use. Just keep all pods out of the immediate area.

Is it safe to turn on the PDM without starting an active pod? Just thought I'd get a feel for it before I have my training session.

The day I had my training it was like Christmas. :)
Comment by FHS on October 28, 2010 at 9:43pm
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.
Comment by Kati * on October 28, 2010 at 11:20am
My starter kit ships today!! :)
Comment by Kati * on October 28, 2010 at 9:31am
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 :)
Comment by Gil DePaula on October 28, 2010 at 9:00am
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.
