"We used to waste a lot of insulin, also. The accuracy of the pump is so much better, I think it is worth it. As long as your Rx is enough to cover the insulin needed, go for it! Omnipod will do very small increments, giving better control when they…"

Hi Laura, my son has been using the omnipod for about 2 years going well, some quirks and ups and downs but mostly good. we found the first week of saline and double testing more stressful than the real startup. do not expect perfection, typically endos go easy with the transition so he may run high although we didnt have a big problem with that. our biggest problem was highs after pod changes, we typically give a small bolus pre pod change and another post based on his bs see how it goes but if you run into the problem you have some seasoned podders here to bounce things off of. best wishes, amy
