cellista8 replied to Jean's discussion 'BS high even tho no error on Pod' in the group OmniPod Users
"I agree about the need to know more about high BG levels. I cannot afford to be changing pods early unless absolutely necessary because of the loss of insulin and the problems with refills.My insurance company has less and less tolerance for this.…"

cellista8 replied to Jean's discussion 'BS high even tho no error on Pod' in the group OmniPod Users
"I think that the allergy theory is given by duckatect above. I was advised to switch to humalog for the Omni Pod (by the nurse /advisor)..other forms of insulin are also more expensive.My Endo has said that I seem to have some insulin resistance . I…"

cellista8 replied to Jean's discussion 'BS high even tho no error on Pod' in the group OmniPod Users
"Well that is scary...What are the symptoms of insulin allergy? I know that my Endo suspects that I am both type 1 and type 2, I also seem to run high after I change pods . If only this were an exact science..."

cellista8 replied to Jean's discussion 'BS high even tho no error on Pod' in the group OmniPod Users
"I am going to discuss this more carefully with my endocrinologist next month. But there must be some medical advice we can access? Any doctors associated with Omni pod? One explanation is a sort of "insulin resistance" after the numbers…"

cellista8 replied to Jean's discussion 'BS high even tho no error on Pod' in the group OmniPod Users
"Hello Jean: It is nice to have a group to chat about this with! I have similar problems from time to time. One of the downsides of the pod is that you can have hours /days like this, adding more insulin with no result. It is very difficult to…"

cellista8 replied to Mike777's discussion 'Abbot/Omni-Pod - Both NEED to be held accountable!!!!' in the group OmniPod Users
"Mike: I agree with the frustration expressed here. Both Omnipod and Abbot share responsibility. How many of us had to sit on hold for hours to get test strips that would work? The amount being invested in the PDM, so that we do not have to carry…"

cellista8 commented on Mathew's group 'OmniPod Users'
"Thanks to this group for posting. I also have days when my numbers are too high and hard to bring down. I have been told that control becomes more difficult the longer one has been a diabetic. Also, my doctors think I am actually type 1 AND type 2 .…"

cellista8 replied to chandra's discussion 'Ran out of pods... what to do while I wait?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I find this to be a serious problem every 3 months when my new pods are supposed to ship. First of all, you should always have a back up plan with Lantus and Humalog (in pens) You need long term as well as short acting insulin. However, it takes a…"

cellista8 replied to Avi e's discussion 'Is tubeless worth the trouble in its current state?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Tubeless is a good idea for babies, but I posted earlier that the recent posts online about lack of reliability would force me to talk seriously to the endocrinologist. Some folks online have good results..many have high rate of failure. One of the…"

cellista8 commented on Mathew's group 'OmniPod Users'
"I am glad to hear that the pod has worked well for infants! (Although I have ALWAYS been admonished by omni pod trainers and tech support to be SURE to pinch up the skin). Good news for the parents of infant type 1 ! Perhaps the discussion of…"

cellista8 commented on Mathew's group 'OmniPod Users'
"Re: pod vs ? for infant. I agree from the point of view of the convenience of a pod for a young child/infant. But given the problems with the product, I think your approach is very idealized. You must pinch up skin to insert the catheter…"

cellista8 commented on Mathew's group 'OmniPod Users'
"To Avie e: I did not begin using the Omni pod until I was 60...but given the issues about pod failures for adults, I would advise a different system for an infant. The other pump systems make it much easier to change out /save insulin if there is a…"

cellista8 replied to Dondi's discussion 'Omnipod (New Version) Failures' in the group OmniPod Users
"I am glad this works for you, but it was Omni Pod that told me that Apidra does not work as well with the pods. Maybe it works better in the new pods. I will call again. Free sounds good."

cellista8 replied to Dondi's discussion 'Omnipod (New Version) Failures' in the group OmniPod Users
"Thank you! Very good point! I did not get this specific information from anyone, but partly because I keep giving the process more time to bring down high BG . I will discuss this with my Endocrinologist(who is new to Omni pod) and make a call to…"

cellista8 replied to Dondi's discussion 'Omnipod (New Version) Failures' in the group OmniPod Users
"This is a great deal, but my endocrinologist and the Omni pod folks told me that Apidra does not work well with the pod? I noticed much better control when I switched to humalog....???"

cellista8 replied to Dondi's discussion 'Omnipod (New Version) Failures' in the group OmniPod Users
"I have had occasional failures of the pod, but some months it has happened often enough that I have to refill my insulin much earlier. This is a problem that should be more easily addressed by Omnipod. I do not like to write letters to replace the…"
