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…Continue

"Glad you like it David, you'll be even more amazed at the ability to see your Dex and Omnipod graphs on the same page. Good luck Friday, I'm sure you'll do fine."

"Okay, you're both absolutely right - Diasend is fantastic! At this point, I have only a few days' worth of data from just one device (the Dex) to play with, but it is clear that this is going to be fun :) Getting trained on the 'Pod…"

"I have Harvard Pilgrim and they cover both Omnipod and Dexcom 100% without any co-pays. All I did was fill out the paperwork and have my PCP fax the forms to Dexcom they did all the rest of the work. Some insurance requires you to be hypoglycemic…"

"Wow - I'm completely excited by all of the news posted about this. I'm still on a path to getting a CGM, but knowing all this helps me tremendously to make that decision. Still waiting to hear if Tufts will cover it."

"Congratulations David, I have had T1 for 40 years and got the Dex first in Nov. 2012 and once Dex showed me how poorly I was managing on MDI I got an Omnipod in May 2013 (38 years after dx). Two of the best decisions I have made to control my D. I…"

"Awesome! Thank you. Our Dex is shipping today, and we have the Pod - just haven't been trained yet. So excited to start working with the data from both. (T1D on MDI for last 33 years - starting omnipod soooooooon.)"

"David, the only cables needed are the ones that came with your Dex and Omnipod systems. There is nothing special to set up. You enter your own personal information and the serial numbers of your receiver and PDM and the program will take care of the…"

"Clare, that's great news!! Can you tell me what was needed in order to get the Dex and the Omnipod to talk to diasend uploader? Are there cables needed, or are both the Dex and the 'Pod infrared? Any special setup steps I should make note…"

"Diasend works perfectly for this. You can skip the CLinic ID entry and it will still allow you to upload and view all relevant data. I just did mine last week."

"I'm on the new pods, and just back to auto ship. They are only shipping me one box now, and the other two boxes at the end of the month due to a "shortage". So it's not just the old pods. I'll be glad when everyone is on the…"
