Eric Rizzo replied to Dave's discussion 'Major reliability improvement?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Insulet sent a letter around the same time as the new syringes that explained (sort of) the software changes in the pods. Being a software engineer myself, my interpretation of the letter was that they adjusted the algorithm that determines when an…"

Eric Rizzo replied to Aussie's discussion 'Onipod' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"One of the big benefits of OmniPod is that there is virtually no opportunity to "make a mistake" when changing; you fill it, you place it on your body, you press a button on the controller and voilà, it's done. It primes…"

Eric Rizzo replied to Aussie's discussion 'Onipod' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"There's a dedicated group of OmniPod Users: http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/omnipodusers Take a look at the history of discussions there; this question has been asked and answered many times."

Eric Rizzo replied to dishers's discussion 'Rechargeable batteries' in the group OmniPod Users
"I have a few different brands of AAA rechargeables, Duracell and Rayovac I think. Like I said, they don't generally last as long as alkaline batteries in the PDM. I do have a few sets of AA Eneloops and they are indeed excellent. Can be found…"

Eric Rizzo replied to dishers's discussion 'Rechargeable batteries' in the group OmniPod Users
"I use rechargeables all the time. The biggest issue is that the battery meter feature of the PDM isn't very accurate with them, but I don't find that to be any inconvenience. It never shows that the batteries have a full charge, and it…"

Eric Rizzo replied to John Galt's discussion 'PDM With No BG Meter... J&J OneTouch PDM?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I had my endo write a letter stating that Freestyle strips are required and an alternative is not acceptable according to his medical prescription for me (to use OmniPod). BCBS accepted that. Wish I saved the letter so I could share the exact…"

Eric Rizzo replied to Avi e's discussion 'Is tubeless worth the trouble in its current state?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Avi, I think you're largely overestimating the level of problems. I've written about this several times before so I'll just copy-and-paste what I've said in the past. I'll add that since my first box of 2nd gen pods…"

Eric Rizzo replied to BWashington's discussion 'More occlusions with the new pods?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I had a definite increase in my first couple of boxes of the new ones (6 pod failures, not sure which were occlusions, compared to about 3-4 the entire year before), but haven't had a failure in several weeks now. That includes part of my…"

Eric Rizzo replied to Budababe's discussion 'What is an Occlussion?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Another variant of an occlusion is if the cannula gets a bend or kink in it, thus preventing insulin from flowing through freely. This can happen if the cannula hits "harder" tissue such as muscle, or maybe under other circumstances.…"

Eric Rizzo replied to Kate's discussion 'Great CS Experience!' in the group OmniPod Users
"Thanks for sharing the positive story, Kate. I've always had great experiences with Insulet support. Most recently, I was preparing to leave on a week-long vacation out of state and realized I would only have 3 spare pods (old ones) with my…"

Eric Rizzo replied to Chris's discussion 'thinking of going tubeless' in the group OmniPod Users
"Like others have said, don't let the vocal minority sway you too much. How many complaints have you read? 10? 20? 100? So what... OmniPod has about 45,000 users in the US (according to the most recent investors info I think), so what percentage…"

Eric Rizzo replied to Kerri's discussion 'Need advice. Omni pod vs Tslim' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"I also use Macs, although my wife has a Windows notebook. I installed the software on it but to be honest I haven't used it in years. It's just not very useful for me; the only "report" I or my endocrinologist care about is my…"

Eric Rizzo replied to Kerri's discussion 'Need advice. Omni pod vs Tslim' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"Being tubeless was the only reason I even considered a pump after almost 20 years of MDI. Here's a good summary I wrote after being a 'podder for about 1.5 years - it's mostly still how I feel today, 4 years later.…"

Hi Eric read your bit on the penguins and though you should look at bullet proof at my spot. That tape is so light so sticky so water proof and leaves no glue when removed I thought you should know about it. I preach too much. Take care. Michael.
