SherryAnn replied to Jen in CO's discussion 'traveling in Europe, need help' in the group OmniPod Users
"If all else fails, go to an emergency room at the nearest hospital. Explain your problem. If you do not have any back-up syringes and insulin to use, they will set you up with emergency supplies until you can get help from Insulet. You may even get…"

"The advice to contact Omnipod in France is good. However, given the delay in shipping new pods in an emergency, I also have learned to have an immediate back up plan : pens with short and long acting insulin (and the appropriate instructions). I…"

"Yes, Omnipod should be able to help ASAP. For me I usually carry an insulin pen and some needles just in case of total failure. Never had this much trouble though."

"I keep my pods in my hand-luggage when I travel. I don't know whether you had yours in your suitcase. Have you had a bad batch? Ypsomed is a European Company, so getting more pods is feasible. Theoretically, Ypsomed France should be able to…"

traveling in Europe, need help

Hello all. I live in Colorado and am currently in Paris. I brought 10 pods for 11 days. My last 3 pods have lasted a few hours. I have 3 left , but obviously that doesn't mean much at this point. Any ideas on help??

Jen in CO replied to Scott A's discussion 'Using Apidra with a POD and also higher BG values on 3rd day...' in the group OmniPod Users
"I don't usually have higher numbers on my 3rd day, but my son, who is 8, does frequently (we're both on Humalog). If he's creeping into low 200's, I do a plus 20. If mid 200's or higher, I do plus 40. It usually will make…"

Jacob's mom replied to Jen in CO's discussion 'New Pods: Difference in Basal Rates?' in the group OmniPod Users
"hi jen, when I called omnipod they said, no but the rep didn't seem knowledgeable about the new pods, I thought I read this somewhere or saw it in the instructional videos kind of funny if this is true because they didn't seem to speak…"

"HI Jacobs Mom - do you mean that the new pods automatically give a small bolus at prime, whereas the old pods did not?"

Jacob's mom replied to Jen in CO's discussion 'New Pods: Difference in Basal Rates?' in the group OmniPod Users
"good to here this feed back, Jacob was set for 3 1/2 insulin action time and I was thinking of changing it for the same reason, we have just been adjusting up for his doses if there is a lot of insulin on board, but Jacob doesn't always think…"

Sarah K replied to Jen in CO's discussion 'New Pods: Difference in Basal Rates?' in the group OmniPod Users
"On the old system, I had much higher basal rates that my Ping pump (like, a good 10-20% higher). With the new pod system, they are pretty much the same thing at my Ping. I don't know if it has to do with how it's delivered now or what, but…"
