HbA1c and mal functioning pods

Today I received the results of my HbA1c test: 5,4 %. 1 point less than the previous test (6,4%), some 3 months ago. In the meantime no structural changes in overall lifestyle, food pattern and quantities, exercise or insulin regime. The only change: well behaving pods in this period vs mal functioning pods in the previous period........See More

Yep, although I am now struggling with a lot of prednisolone due to lung problems. But I will get over that, I am sure.

Since when do you have the Omnipod and does it do you good? I started insulin on the 2nd of January of this year.
