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.

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

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?

Comment by Hank Barnes on March 17, 2014 at 1:06pm

dishers,
I think I would opt to have a more in the middle reading, 5.2. you may need to change code(try 17). if you have another meter, you can compare a little better. others may have better opinions. hank

Hi ok I got the control solution and tested it. Said 4.4 bottle says between 4.2-6.3 so code 16 would be correct right? Bit confused how people are comfortable with their readings at different code numbers trying to figure it out. Some help please. Lol

I am starting the Omnipod after I get my tonsils out on March 27th! I am so excited. Is there anything (other than what the trained educators tell me) That I should know before I get it?
Thanks!
