"Hi, and welcome to the POD. I can only speak for me, but I need a lower IC ratio, i.e., it takes more insulin for each g of carb at supper for some reason. That was a programming adjustment I made after being on the POD a while that's worked…"

RobAW replied to Bondedbyblood's discussion 'Asking for advise before starting omnipod!' in the group OmniPod Users
"Hi there. I've been on the POD a few years now, and love it. I rarely have a POD failure nor do I have any issues with the cannula. For POD failures, I simply call support and they replace the POD in my next shipment at no cost. I'm from…"

RobAW replied to Dave's discussion 'Well that's a first time...' in the group OmniPod Users
"Perhaps it's a PDM issue. I would definitely report it to Insulet, and start the ball rolling if it happens again, at least there's a record of it. I got my old pdm replaced once because when I changed batteries, I lost all my settings. It…"

RobAW replied to Bonnie's discussion 'Pod Problems' in the group OmniPod Users

RobAW replied to RobAW's discussion 'Kudo's to Omnipod and their support team' in the group OmniPod Users

Thank you all for the wishes. It's hard to imagine another year has gone by so quickly, and as the numbers grow higher, so does the speed at which birthdays seem to arrive. I appreciate the kind words. Rob
