"My son has almost no fat anywhere on his body. We use his tush and the fronts of his thighs (toward the inside where the skin is a bit looser) most often. We will use his left arm occasionally, but he doesn't really like it on his arms, so the…"

"Betsy, our son did MDI for 5 years (dx at 20 months) and would not entertain a pump at all. We were in for a regular quarterly checkup with his endo and the CDE showed him a pod. He decided on the spot that the pod was for him and he has never…"

"My son has flown several times with his pod. No issues. We have him go through the metal detector, not the scanner, as the scanner is said to possibly cause an issue with the electronics in the pod. Absolutely no issues with indulin delivery while…"

"My son was dx at 20 months and the first few years were filled with wild swings. He could drop 200 points in an hour. The same food 2 days in a row would cause wildly different numbers. When we started he was on MDI of Humalog, NPH and Lantus. We…"

"As folks have said, every device has its own issues. My son has been on OmniPod for 5 years not (since the was 7) and while we do have an occasional failure too early, in all it has been a great choice for him. He was dx at 20 months, but we did not…"

"Prednisone will effect his numbers for days after he finishes the prescribed amount, if he reacts as my son did (liquid pred for illness induced asthma). You just need to plan and not be surprised by it. Test a lot- my son doubled his insulin needs…"

daneenm commented on Mathew's group 'OmniPod Users'

"My son goes very high before he gets sick and also when he is growing. Of course, we cant confirm the grwoth spurt until much later. Just doubling his basal won't cut it, we also have to bump his IC ratio."
