Biedronk replied to Bondedbyblood's discussion 'Asking for advise before starting omnipod!' in the group OmniPod Users
"On average I have a pod failure due to different issues, like cannula problem or so 4 times a year. Insurance covers a new PDM every 4 years if needed. So if you lose it - you have to pay for it cash. Just like any other pump. I have a sticker on…"

Biedronk replied to KevinS's discussion 'How long do you where your sensor?' in the group Dexcom Users
"At minimum 2 weeks, but rarely longer than 3 weeks. After two weeks I get to the point when ??? show a bit often or the accuracy is off. At this point I change."

"Not all HMO is great. Just today I got a rejection for pump application from HMO insurance. Reason: A1c must be above 7" Her A1C is 7.0m results of great work, 3 months ago it was over 10. It makes me ..... Let say.... irritated."

Biedronk replied to Bonnie's discussion 'United HealthCare and Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"I know for a fact that UHC covers omnipod, as per today. I think this was an error. The best is to contact Omnipod and ask them to sort it out with insurance. Or start first with talking to UHC. Or, what may be the fastest, ask your MD to write a…"

Biedronk replied to rgcainmd's discussion 'OmniPod and Apidra' in the group OmniPod Users
"I read once a published study about superiority in time of onset of action of apidra comparing to humalog. After reading it, I decided to try and see. To be honest, I have not noticed a difference. But my friend, on CGM as I, had worse control on…"

Biedronk replied to Joern's discussion 'Tegaderm - the foundation of a sensor' in the group Dexcom Users
"I use Tough pads by Johnson&Johnson. These come in boxes of 4, cost about 5$. It helps to keep the sensor on for 2-3 weeks. And YES, there is NO problem with going through with the needle. I used to cut the hole for the sensor, but once I…"

Biedronk replied to Tony L's discussion 'Dexcom sensor location' in the group Dexcom Users
"It's very personal. A matter of trial and errors. For me stomach works best, and I can run one sensor for 2-3 weeks at the time. I use arms occasionally, but I prefer covered area as by the end of 3 weeks It does not look pretty:-) I know guys…"

CGM and Medicare: Why Can't We Use It?

"In some states Medicare patients can have CGM covered by prescription benefits. I know that this is especially true in Texas, not at all in California. I believe that all of us speaking up in this case could make a chance. It is not more expensive…"
