"75u x 90 days is 6750u. Each vial has 1000u, so you need 7 vials for 90 days. That is my PWD math, perhaps others compute differently! If add in say, 10u, for each site change and if you change every 3 days, then you need 30 site changes x 10u=300u…"

It's very frustrating to say the least. Of course everyone is very helpful, I just got off the phone with a Omnipod rep, she's going to contact BCBShit (ha! I love that) and see what she can do.
