"My son will be going on the pump (Pod) here soon and I like having as much info. ahead of time as possible so we aren't caught off-guard. Thanks. :)"

Ren replied to Lauren Smith's discussion 'Trying out the Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"My only complaint is that one must put a minimum of 85 units of insulin in each pod. Apart from that, I'm loving my barnacles! My A1Cs have not gone above 6.7 since I stuck one on and that makes my specialist (and me) very happy. It is…"

rivey replied to Lauren Smith's discussion 'Trying out the Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"Did MDI for 10 years, A1c was 7-8 range, I looked at all the different pumps but the tubeless attracted me the most. Been on OmniPod since March '12, last 3 A1c's 5.9, 6.1 and 5.7, Endo pretty much speechless:). All pumps have their…"

barend replied to Lauren Smith's discussion 'Trying out the Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"Compared to MDI with the pods my BG is much more predictable. I now only test my blood only 4 times a day rather than the 7 times a day I used to do. Lucky fingers ...... :-) ."

Kate replied to Lauren Smith's discussion 'Trying out the Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"In the 2 years I've been on the pod, I've never had the cannula "fall out". It's in there good. If you feel it go in, it's in. I'm guessing that knocking it really good *might* dislodge it, but again, it's…"

Mom 2 Kyle replied to Lauren Smith's discussion 'Trying out the Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"How and/or why does the cannula fall out? How can you tell??"
Feb 4, 2013
Jim replied to Lauren Smith's discussion 'Trying out the Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"The pod gives me much better control than I was getting with four injections per day. The basal dose and boluses work much more like your pancreas should be working. With luck, you should be able to significantly lower your A1C. I hope it works as…"

Stress replied to Lauren Smith's discussion 'Trying out the Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"I agree with Tab, the tubeless idea peeked my interest and I've been on the Pod since Dec 2011. Before that for 30 years I was injecting. Hopefully I'll never go back to that because I love the Omnipod!!"
Feb 4, 2013
meh_mtl replied to Lauren Smith's discussion 'Trying out the Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"one thing to keep note of, is no alarm will ring if the cannual has fallen out, as far as the pod is aware you are still getting insulin. so you do have to keep an eye on it."
Feb 3, 2013
Eric Rizzo replied to Lauren Smith's discussion 'Trying out the Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"In addition to those it also gives a short beep when a bolus delivery has finished. But the most noticeable and annoying (rightly so) is when it detects an occlusion (blockage). It deactivates and emits a loud, continuous beeeeeeeeep until you…"

Tab replied to Lauren Smith's discussion 'Trying out the Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"Yes it does give warning alarms, when its time to change and if its running low on insulin. I'm sure there are others but I fortunately haven't heard any others."
Feb 2, 2013
Lauren Smith replied to Lauren Smith's discussion 'Trying out the Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"I really liked your blog post, very informative! I have a question, does the pod make noise? Like an alarm if it has stopped working for some reason?"
Feb 2, 2013
Lauren Smith replied to Lauren Smith's discussion 'Trying out the Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"The no tubing is what appealed to me as well! I am hoping a pump will keep my blood sugars in better control!"
