Betty replied to Lindsay's discussion 'Just Curious, Is there anyone who is generally happy with the Omnipod?' in the group OmniPod Users
"4 years this summer on omnipod. I don't have any issues with it at all. I recently trialed the mm revel for a week and the ping for 2 weeks as our insurance would have approved a new pump. But decided to stick with the omnipod. The screen is…"

Betty replied to Tinkersmom's discussion 'Anyone use Dexcom and Omnipod together?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Started on dexcom back in 2008. Before pumping with the pod, and it is amazing the difference it can have in your day to day life. Pods are wonderful, but the CGM is a lifesaver. Literally IMO."

Betty replied to Cheri's discussion 'Is there a Pump/CGMS on the horizon?'
"I wouldn't want to have the pod and sensor in one... I have to change the site for the pump every few days, but will let the CGM sit for a week or more! With dexcom the sensors last 10 + days and you can't leave a pump site there that…"

Betty replied to Christine's discussion 'how did you get the CGM?'
"No CGM will catch every low, but they will alert you to the vast majority of them. Hypoglycemic unawareness is a fantastic reason to get one. You will need a letter of medical necessity, and a prescription. We use the dexcom, and I highly recommend…"

Betty replied to Heather Nicole's discussion 'Pump Help... :('
"If you are interested in a MM pump, I would contact the rep over your area and ask them to see if they can get you a deal like they did for the cozmo pumpers. If they won't help, try animas. I know they had a trade in deal for the cozmo users…"

Betty replied to ish's discussion 'pump reliablility questions'
"We rarely have pod site issues, and when we do, we just draw the insulin back out. It really is not an issue for us at all because they rarely fail, but I have not had any problem getting the insulin out. I'd highly recommend the Omnipod. Great…"

i will be thankfull if you can tell me the exact links you ment

YOu are right. I have run the numbers on the Omnipod, and it does keep me under the cap. But you can use the Dexcom with it? I didn't realize that. My Omnipod rep said they don't have a CGM system yet?? I know I don't quite have the whole picture .... have you used other pumps in the past? You haven't had probs with the Omni?
