Kim replied to Brooklyn's discussion 'I am giving up the Omnipod. Omnipod lovers please skip this discussion' in the group OmniPod Users
"One thing that has helped me is that I started using the Dexcom Seven CGM about a month ago. So if my pod is not functioning like it should, I can see the shift in my glucose levels and adjust as necessary."
