"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…"

"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…"

Natasha Bowlds replied to Jen in CO's discussion 'New Pods: Difference in Basal Rates?' in the group OmniPod Users
"The only thing I have decided to change is the insulin action time. We were set at 3 hours, but it was often subtracting too much insulin when my son would bolus - since it now subtracts meal insulin as well. We changed the insulin action time to 2…"

New Pods: Difference in Basal Rates?

Hi All. We got the new pods & PDM today, yeah!! My 8 year old son is going to Diabetes Camp on Sunday, and I really want him to take the new system. I was wondering if anyone has had to adjust basal rates on the new system, or did all of your settings transfer easily? Thanks! jenSee More

Jen in CO replied to Erik's discussion 'Current Users Are Important to Insulet (LOL)' in the group OmniPod Users
"I am not "being greedy", and I love my Omnipod. For my small child, though, it's a different story. I would put off my own conversion for years, if it meant we could get my son on a safer pump (not having a proper IOB, and not many…"

Jen in CO replied to MeganB's discussion 'Highs after pod changes again!!!!!' in the group OmniPod Users
"Hi Megan. I am on the monopod, along with my 7 year old son. I have found that different sites run at different basal rates. I will oftentimes just use temp basals for specific sites to get them to behave. I have also found that different sites need…"

"My son (who is currently 7) and I have been on Omnipod for 2 1/5 years. We both picked Omnipod because of the tubing issues with other pumps. He was five at the time, but I let him decide, and he chose the pods. We both love our pods (as much as one…"

Jen in CO replied to Herman's discussion '2e generation Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"I'm actually more interested in the new PDM. It calculates all insulin on board now, correct? (Important for us with little people, when others are bolusing them)."
