"Just had mine refilled and had a my 3 month supply (5 boxes) filled and shipped out. Sounds like your supplier is spreading some fertilizer to keep you from switching."

"The issue may be specific to your supplier (not Insulet). Maybe their stock of old pods is running out and they don't have the new ones yet?"

"Nope, I haven't heard this at all. Have you tried calling Insulet directly and finding out what the issue is? I would think that they would need to provide you with the new system if they can't provide you with the old one any longer…"

Omnipod shortage???

I tried to reorder pods (usually a 3 month supply) and was told by my supplier that "due to a nationwide shortage" they could only ship out a 2 month supply. Has anyone else heard this? Is it related to the new OmniPods (so they're tailing off production) since i'm not on the new one yet? Or an actual production problem?See More
