"Yes I tried the pod also. I like the omnipod PDM too. So I haven't ruled it out. But I have no experience in pumps, so I'm taking my time. But I will be glad to stop MDI of 6 shots a day!"

"Glad you are at least getting a chance to try pumping out. The Asante only uses humalog which has given me problems in the past. Omnipod has the demo pods so you can feel the weight of it and see if your skin reacts to the adhesive. But they…"

"I'm working with my CDE. I have an appointment next week to try the Asante snap pump for a 4 week trial. I'm not committed to anything yet, though. I'll see how that goes. The link for reviews was very helpful. Thanks!"

Having a bit of trouble with the website, and can't find contact info for the webmaster. The Problem: if my post is accidentally longer than 140 characters, it sets a flag (only 140 characters allowed). But after I edit and remove some characters, the flag does not reset, as the result, once i go over the limit, I can not make the post no matter how much i change to get it in the proper limit. This is a fairly easy software fix....
