Annie replied to Bunkerg's discussion 'Switching from Minimed to Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"So for those of you who switched, why and how do you like what you are using now? I'm contemplating getting the Omnipod, but I'm still having a hard time psychologically making the switch from quickpens. I only got diagnosed in July, am 33…"

"Hello! I went through the same change (from Minimed to Omnipod) less than a year ago... and, I too had low sugars and used fewer units of insulin. For me I think it was because I went from using my belly for 12+ years to my back and arms. There…"

MarysMom replied to Bunkerg's discussion 'Switching from Minimed to Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"YEP! I have to agree here. I went the total opposite (Omnipod to Minimed) and what a huge adjustment for my daughter. I guess I am learning that not all pumps are created equal. I have to say that my daughter levels are the best they have ever been…"

John replied to Bunkerg's discussion 'Switching from Minimed to Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"I have switched pumps twice--Minimed to Cozmo--Cozmo to Omnipod. WAC time, I did multiple, multiple BG readings in the transitions. Basal rates were significantly different with each device."

Sandy Palmer replied to Bunkerg's discussion 'Switching from Minimed to Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"Whenever i changed from any MiniMed pump to a different model I had the same thing. Reason being is that the MiniMed delivers a little different than most of your other pumps. It's a formula so the less insulin you use the more time inbetween…"

"I didn't notice any drastic drop (that I remember) when I switched from the MM to the pod. But I also don't know that I was looking for one either :) I would say you're likely on the right track in thinking it could be related to the…"

Janice replied to Bunkerg's discussion 'Switching from Minimed to Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"The OmniPod was/is my first pump so I cannot answer your first inquiry. I rotate from my stomach to my side and lower back (just over the buttocks). The lower back is by far my favorite site."

Switching from Minimed to Omnipod

Hi everyone! I just found this group and joined yesterday. I've been using Minimed pumps for about 12 years now, and just switched to the Omnipod this week.Since switching over, I have had a ton of low BGs, and have had to drop my basals and my carb ratios several times. My total daily dose was about 34-35 units/day on the Paradigm, and yesterday I took 27 units and still had several lows. Did any of you have your insulin sensitivity go way up when you switched to Omnipod? Could this be due to…See More
