clubkobe replied to nevada's discussion 'When do you bolus? - How early before eating? I think I wait too long sometimes.' in the group OmniPod Users
"Lots of variables, but generally 20 min. before works for me."

clubkobe replied to S Lew's discussion 'Omni Pad and Dex Com' in the group OmniPod Users
"I have used both for the past several years. I check the Dexcom several times a day, both to calibrate and just see the current level. I find it especially useful when I am about to go out on a walk or some other activity where I might need to take…"

clubkobe replied to S Lew's discussion 'Omni Pad and Dex Com' in the group OmniPod Users
"Sometimes the Dex is off, but about 90% of the time it's right on target. I think I just have to calibrate more often. I rely on it enough that I often plug the results into my omnipod for a correction bolus or to determine if I have to seek…"

clubkobe replied to Dondi's discussion 'Omnipod (New Version) Failures' in the group OmniPod Users
"My new replacements are filtering in, two at a time, maybe once a week. They still owe me about 14. My first order of 3 boxes was dismal, failures mostly at the end of a bolus with .05 remaining. Now I am on a more recent order of pods and no…"

"It also helps to have the lot #, sequence # and error code already written down too."

clubkobe replied to dalajosa's discussion 'New Omnipod user and first failed pod' in the group OmniPod Users
"If it fails within the first 24 hrs, I will try to recapture what's left, then I add more from the vial to top it off. Never have had a problem."

clubkobe replied to Dondi's discussion 'Omnipod (New Version) Failures' in the group OmniPod Users
"Ha, good luck. They told me they were sending my 16 replacements overnight, I got 2 pods a week later and no return envelope for the failed pods. Many of mine, including the last one failed at the end of a bolus, same as you, with .05 remaining. Lot…"

clubkobe replied to Dondi's discussion 'Omnipod (New Version) Failures' in the group OmniPod Users
"Yes, they will replace. All of mine failed a day or two into wearing them, usually when I am just in basal mode. One failed within 2 hrs of it expiring. This is not user's fault as some have alleged. I have had no priming errors. I have 16…"

clubkobe replied to meh_mtl's discussion 'resistance on filling the old pods' in the group OmniPod Users
"With the old pods, Insulet told me that if the insulin was hard to inject, call it in as a failed pod."

clubkobe replied to rivey's discussion 'Anybody getting their return packs for the failed pods?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Still awaiting 14 pods that I've called in, nothing yet. It will be 16 after I call in two more, all new, smaller pods. They told me there was a hold up in their shipping dept. Also suggested I call my supplier. The supplier laughed and said…"

clubkobe replied to Dondi's discussion 'Omnipod (New Version) Failures' in the group OmniPod Users
"I am currently awaiting 14 replacement pods due to failures, not occlusions. I have been waiting more than 2 weeks. I am now on my last box of the new pods, first shipment. So 14 out of 20 have failed. Insulet told me their shipping dept. is behind.…"

clubkobe replied to Dave's discussion 'Favorite pod sites' in the group OmniPod Users
"95% of the time I use upper arms, back, front, sides. Sometimes abdomen but it's not a favorite site. I haven't really tried anywhere else."

clubkobe replied to dishers's discussion 'Pod Removal' in the group OmniPod Users
"I don't really pay attention either. But every once in awhile, it really bleeds, and I don't even know until I soaks my shirt or I happen to notice it start bleeding. Maybe it's the baby aspirin I take every morning which thins my…"

clubkobe replied to Alisonisayoshi's discussion 'Failure after Failure' in the group OmniPod Users
"I had the battery problem with the old pod, not once, but twice and in each case, Insulet immediately sent a new pdm and I sent the old one back. Finally got a working one and all was well. I also notice less of a high at change time with the new…"

Hey! Welcome home!

I am happy that you are reading this and that you are a member of the growing TuDiabetes family.

Since the community was formed back in early 2007, lots of things have changed. Also since then, lots of new members have joined: we're now nearly 11,300 members. So, new members and new features means it never hurts to refresh how things work around the community.

If you haven't read it, I invite you to take a few minutes to go through our New Member Guide. If you have been a member for a while but have let a little dust accumulate on your TuDiabetes account, you will find it very useful. If you joined just recently, you will find it EVEN MORE handy.

If you don't find answers to a question you may have, never hesitate to ask. Click on the Contact Us link at the bottom of any page and one of the members of our Admin team (you can see their faces on the bottom right side of any page) will get back to you shortly.
