Penny commented on jrtpup's group 'Why I participate in this community'
"TuDiabetes allows me to feel less alone in caring for a daughter with Type 1. My daughter will grown up more physically healthy, but more importantly, more emotionally healthy, because she and I have had this kind of support."

Penny replied to Helmut's discussion 'A1C surprise' in the group OmniPod Users

Penny replied to Helmut's discussion 'A1C surprise' in the group OmniPod Users

Penny replied to Ali's discussion 'pod in pool - take two' in the group Omnipod Users
"Do you use the micropore tape to cover the Pod or is it used under the Pod, between the skin and the adhesive? I haven't heard of the micropore tape and anyone using it. If you could explain that would be great. I have a 7 year old gal, Type 1,…"
