I've been high the past couple weeks. Eventually I go down but it seems like the insulin isn't fully working or it takes sooo long to act. I tried everything--changing my insulin from Apidra to…Continue

"I'm sure it's primarily for safety when groups of Omnipod users gather together, however it is also useful for recovery of a lost PDM. This is presumably why the symbols in the ID include those commonly used in an email address (my PDM ID…"

"Like said earlier it's a safety feature. Great in many cases, and very useful. However, I do wish they'd allowed this feature to be turned on and off. I don't feel I need it in my situation."

"If the range is greater for situations like that, I'm glad! Perhaps it is just my particular PDM. Hopefully that is the case :)"

Lorraine replied to Danielle's discussion 'PDM ID & new pods!' in the group OmniPod Users
"That's interesting (and unfortunate). I definitely find range is greater with the new system. I do not have to move to Caleb - in the car, across the table, etc. if I am holding it, like I used to. But, I must always be pointing in his…"

Bradford replied to Danielle's discussion 'PDM ID & new pods!' in the group OmniPod Users
"I actually find I have less range w/ the new one. With the old one, I could be holding it, pointing forward (away from body), and it would talk to the pod on my back, or back of my arm. Now w/ the new one if I don't have it pointed in the…"

Lorraine replied to Danielle's discussion 'PDM ID & new pods!' in the group OmniPod Users
"I think this may have been an important feature to add given the increased range between the PDM and the Pod. You no longer need to be holding the PDM or in that kind of proximity to communicate with the Pod. It's more likely that someone could…"

PDM ID & new pods!

I just put on my first of the new smaller pods and loving the size! I agree with what everyone has already stated that they love about the new pods. My question is this. What is the point of the PDM ID? It is on the screen everytime I turn on the PDM. But I don't get it's use. The only thing I could think of would be for purposes if its lost or you're with a bunch of other people that have an omnipod and you all throw your pdms in a pile???Ha! Can someone help me understand?Thx!See More

Hello Danielle!

I'm using Tudiabetes as a way to connect with fellow young adults with diabetes. I'm a University of South Florida student and president of our chapter of "Students with Diabetes." We're hosting a national conference June 1st - 3rd in Tampa and want to bring in as many Type I diabetics (18 - 30yrs) as possible from across the country.

The conference costs $55 dollars total, but we can't pay for your plane ticket (housing, food, & activities like Busch Gardens are, however, included in the price). Please let me know if you are interested in any of this and/or visit our website for more information!

www.studentswithdiabetes.com

If you're at all interested in any of this, please reach out. I'm easy to get in contact with. :)

Hey I was curious to what kind of problems you were having with the pods. I used to have issues with mine too but after reading posts on here I haven't had an alarm in several months.
