"To turn off the beeps related to testing, try: settings,system set up,bg meter,bg sound: off As others have said, there doesn't seem to be any way to override the set 80 hour limit of each pod."

"Agreed! But then again, some times I do forget when I changed it last and those pesky alarms actually come in handy :)"

"You can turn off the BG reminders...The expire alert reminder will start 1at hr 71, then every hour after. I do not believe that you can silence the expiration reminder alarms. Very frustrating, if you want to sleep through the night."

"Terry's right. In addition, once the three days (72 hours) is up the expiring pod will alarm every hour. I am not aware that those can be turned off, though..."

"The maximum amount of time the Omnipod allows is 80 hours or three days + 8 hours. There is no workaround. The biggest downside to that, for me, is I hate changing a site when it is working well and I have insulin left."

Overriding Omnipod 3 day pod cycle

Is there any way to override your pods alarms for pod replacement for longer then the suggested 3 days? I haven't figured out a way to override the PDM so that it stops beeping and beeping to replace despite having enough insulin left for continued use. For one, it's cost and also, the desire to not have to change every 3 days.Also, is there a way to turn off "ALL BEEPS" for the testing of BG? I have turned off the beeps for bolus delivery except I cannot find a setting for silencing the beeps…See More

Gene Kelly replied to Jim's discussion 'Dexcom/Omnipod Integration?????' in the group OmniPod Users
"Hi Jim, Check out their new 7 plus sensor.....it's smaller and the receiver is tinier than the G4 receiver. You might like that too. I'm looking into both devices now. As far as integration...I agree with you.it would be great....but…"

Gene Kelly commented on Rob's group 'Dexcom Users'
"What are useability differences between the Dexcom4 and the Dexcom 7 plus? Is the user interface of the receivers very different? I hear that you cannot customize alarms for low blood sugars.....Any insights would be appreciated."

I'm Glad that you found us. I'm sure all of your concerns will be addressed and your questions will be answered here. We are all different yet we still have similar concerns since we are intertwined through Diabetes.

Geez, 33 years and no Major complications. Congratulations! I must say that you did Better than I did. Through circumstance, I wasn't taught much about Diabetes and I grew to hate it especially as a Teenager. After 22 years with it, I had Retinopathy in my left eye also. And a few other jigjags through the years. But slowly I've learned about Diabetes and myself and thankfully, I'm doing pretty Good now with Diabetes(touch wood)although I have tempted fate a few times. :D

Good to hear and I agree that we can't drop the ball concerning Diabetes or it'll eat us up and spit us out when we least expect it. Keep up your Good work and stay aware cuz Luck does run out eventually. Have a Fine day Gene.
