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.

Hi all, I'm brand new to the site and brand new to OmniPod, 5 days on it. I just switched from an almost 5 year relationship with my minimed.

Try Bands4Life. They are made of swimsuit material, to your size. My son finds that they work great on his arm, in and out of the pool.

I have used the stretchy tape, but it didn't stay stuck; and have tried the regular ace bandage, but it slid down my arm. What has worked for me (if it doesn't show) is a sock with the foot cut off. It's tight enough to stay in place, and there's no tape residue to deal with.

We use kinesiotape on my daughter - stretchy, breathable and waterproof for a while. Also CVS brand of 2 x 4 XL Heavy Duty Waterproof Bandages - they hold up the longest in the water. These will fit especially well with the new pods (if we ever get them!)

Comment by Bob on May 12, 2013 at 11:05am

my question is, I want to protect my Pods better especially on my Arm, Does anyone use tube ace type bandages or stretchy tape

Comment by Gil DePaula on May 10, 2013 at 9:32pm

All the pump brands have problems with occlusions, kinks, off failures, skin rashes (CGMS companies too) from the adhesive, etc, etc.

Good to know there are some good endos out ther barbraan. It's terrible to be searching through so much muck for a diamond! LOL

Comment by barbraann on May 9, 2013 at 7:15pm

Yes Gi, I went to several Endo's before finding my current Dr. He's wonderful and I'm very confident in him. He listens and we work together. Keep looking, I'm sure you'll find someone you can trust and who is knowledgeable about all the different types of pumps and treatments out there.
