Regina replied to Regina's discussion 'OMG, two failed pods in one day!' in the group OmniPod Users
"Thanks for the tips, Matti. :) I'll definitely track it now. So far, so good with this third pod. As of now, just two out of the first box have failed, but I'll definitely keep track! I know that cost of Humalog per vial is crazy, so I can…"

"I had a bad batch once and got them to replace the box with a different lot #. I had like six failures over two days or something. Also track how many fail and I would say after like 5 or so you can ask for reimbursement for insulin. I had to fight…"

clubkobe replied to Regina's discussion 'OMG, two failed pods in one day!' in the group OmniPod Users
"2 failures in a day is not usual. When the smaller pods first came out, there were lots of problems that many of us experienced. I had a 70% failure rate in one box. But things have definitely improved. I've only had two fail in the last 6…"

"hey, regina, I just switched to the Omnipod, too. Definitely takes some getting used to, and a bit harder to use than a standard pump in some ways! I also had just gotten a shipment of strips for my old meter!! I had some issues with the first 3…"

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!

Pssst.... pass it on!

I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.

If you haven't yet, go log a Big Blue Test at http://www.bigbluetest.org/. If you have, do another!
