"Have you contacted Dexcom with this question? They are extremely helpful and will probably give you all the info you need, including anything you should be worried about. If, there is anything to worry about..."

"I only had a couple occlusion on the older pods. Haven't had one on the new pods. Check with Insulet though, they might replace the bad pods for you."

Scott Wilkins replied to SherryAnn's discussion 'Problems with Lancets?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I'm on and Aspirin regiment. Zero problems drawing blood, and sometimes get to test even when I wasn't expecting too... :) 43 years Type 1."

Scott Wilkins replied to Dave's discussion 'Do you plan to change a pod at work?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I don't get a full 3 days out of a pod due to insulin resistance. So I change my pod whenever it runs out, where ever I may be. I always carry an extra pod and insulin with me. So I've changed out in a variety of locations. I do like the…"

"Link to the software download?"

Scott Wilkins replied to SherryAnn's discussion 'Sticking Needle' in the group OmniPod Users
"I started the newer pods last week, the ones with the new syringe. So far they seem to be quite a bit better on canula insertion. I also like the new syringe, as I find it easier to get less bubbles, and much less wasteful on insulin."
Nov 5
Scott Wilkins replied to Kate's discussion 'New syringe design' in the group OmniPod Users
"Just FYI, I started a new shipment of pods and now have the new syringe. I find it MUCH better than the old syringe. I can actually get less bubbles by pulling just a couple units in and pushing back into the vial a few times right at first (after…"

Scott Wilkins replied to jen627's discussion 'Looking for site suggestions!' in the group OmniPod Users
"The abs are a big area, think higher and such. I tend to use the area under my elbow on my side as a fall back area. Also, keep in mind as a Type 1 diabetic ages, insulin resistance will go up normally. Talk to you doc about this. It occurs because…"

Scott Wilkins replied to rgcainmd's discussion 'New Transmitter!' in the group Dexcom Users
"Cool! Now if they'd make the sensor pad thinner too it'd really be a big plus for this system. So far that's been my only real gripe is the height of the sensor/transmitter setup, it's just too "out there" while on your…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Hummingbird's discussion 'A1c down thanks to my dexcom' in the group Dexcom Users
"Congrats on your success! I too had great results, went from a steady 8 to a 6.1 in about 6 months. Even ran only a 6.3 last time, and that's a big deal because I was on a steroid treatment for a surgery recovery therapy thing. And we all know…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Lorraine's discussion 'DexCom Share Approved by the FDA | #Dexcom #Dexcomshare' in the group Dexcom Users
"I don't see anything about a requirement for Windows... Since it's cloud based, the OS used on shouldn't matter."
Oct 20
Scott Wilkins replied to Lorraine's discussion 'DexCom Share Approved by the FDA | #Dexcom #Dexcomshare' in the group Dexcom Users
"A little disappointing, as it's not a setup for full control of the Dexcom via smartphone but at least a move in the right direction. I guess full control would require a different hardware configuration for the receiver and/or transmitter."

Scott Wilkins replied to Lorraine's discussion 'DexCom Share Approved by the FDA | #Dexcom #Dexcomshare' in the group Dexcom Users
"Android is too virus ridden. I'd never put personal info on any Android device."
Oct 20
Scott Wilkins replied to Kate's discussion 'New syringe design' in the group OmniPod Users
"There is a thread here where folks were questioning this "new" syringe. As long as it works, I guess it really doesn't matter. It's just a delivery device, as if it's clean I guess it OK."

Scott Wilkins replied to Kay459's discussion 'New to Omnipod- can you help me figure out what I am doing wrong?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Sounds to me that simply your doctor needs to get into the process. I believe from reading your story that the settings are simply not correct. This is actually very normal for the first few months of insulin pumping. It is a different delivery…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Scott A's discussion 'Are the Dexcom sensors lasting as long these days?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I had that a few sensors back, not lasting barely 2 weeks. But I just changed one out after 5 weeks of wearing it, which is too long but I got lazy and didn't want to change it until it started getting sore which it did so I gave up on it.…"

Posted on August 15, 2012 at 7:30am 7 Comments

Read it all, but here's the good part...
