My son is also 7 and wets the bed when he is high while sleeping:-( I am hoping he outgrows it too! Hopefully someone will reply
I expect he will outgrow it... my 8 yo doesn't wet the bed, but I don't think he ever did, at least not regularly. He does get up to pee if he is high (it's a pretty good sign that he needs a correction if I hear him get up to pee). Sounds like you need to get rid of the omnipod! It just stops working at night?? I've never had a tubed pump do that. How high is his sugar? My son has to be pretty high to need to pee, like over 300, but he has a big bladder! good luck...
That was how I dx my son ... he started wetting the bed at night at age 12. I knew something was wrong. Once we got his sugars under control the bed wetting stopped. It was very embarrassing for him. :(
Now, the BIG question is ... the OmniPod just shuts off? No warning or you don't know why? Does this happen often?
Yes sometimes the Omnipod will just start beeping and then say to remove the pod and that insulin delivery has stopped :( There isn't a warning other than the beeping. Whenever we are leaving the house and going somewhere that we can't come back right away we always carry an extra pod and a vial of insulin. It doesn't happen that often....but it does happen. I've noticed that usually when it happens with one in a box it will usually happen again to another pod out of the same box. I will say though, Insulet is AMAZING at sending us replacement pods. All I have to do is call and they ship out a replacement. The benefits of the Omnipod definitely outweigh the negatives. It has been life-changing for us.
