"Perhaps the batteries were old? I seem to get much longer than that, at least a month I'd say. I doubt very much it's a setting thing, unless maybe your screen timeout is set to the max 60 and the backlight timeout is also max of 60. That…"
"Awesome, I remember that exciting feeling a few years ago. "That's it?" when the first insertion happened, the freedom that goes along with the POD and not having to bring "the kit" everywhere I go, that first meal bolus…"
"Hi. I've been on the POD for a while now and have had relatively few problems. From time to time one will fail, but that happens. They have all been replaced for me in my next shipment of PODs for free. As for staying on, I have yet to have one…"
"Yes, while still being on your regular shots or using your old pump. I suppose it gets you used to the system. I did not do the saline, just jumped right in without missing a beat. Good luck, I love the old and and it works great for me."
"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…"
"Thats not good at all. I am not having this problem, but whenever something does happen, I'm quick to call Insulet support and they have always been quick to deal with the issue. That many in one box/lot, I would definately call them and aslk…"
"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…"
"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…"
"Went to Cedar Point last week for two days and had no issues. We stayed close to the park so I didn't bring the extra gear with me, I left it all in the hotel, but do bring lots of spares with you in case you knock one our more off, it happened…"
"Hi Bonnie. I'll start by saying good luck with your decision, and it's a good thing you're researching. For me, the Omnipod was the only choice. I have no desire to pump with a tubed machine. I also agree totally with Barbaraann. I an…"
"Steve D, I'll start by saying that I'm truly sorry that you had to go through a heart attack. I'm also very glad that you survived and still have your witts about you - I wish nobody ever had to go through such an experience.
"It must have something to do with the Canadian team or that GSK is involved here. I deal directly with Omnipod Support for ordering my pods as well as any problems I have, and have not experienced any problem ever. I wish I had such great support…"
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
