My 7 year old has been T1D for over 2 years, the honeymoon is long over. For the last week or so we've been having low after low. In the last 24 hours we've seen two BS in the 30s. This is not normal…Continue

We have been using Omnipod for a week now and yesterday we did our second pod change. The first two were on her arms and we saw similar absorbency in her arms as we did on MDI with shots in her arms.…Continue

"No we are still rotating through the same sites, upper thigh, stomach, back of the arm. I don't see any appreciable difference between sites either. So weird."

"Just wondering what sites you are using. Have you changed infusion sites recently that you may have never used before? Unfortunately, I've had this happen to me with no explanation. And the other way around I've went very high with no…"

"The only other cases I can think of were due to improved insulin sensitivity, which can happen from increased exercise and or weight loss. When I was rowing crew in college (hours of intense workout every day) my insulin needs were crazy low - so it…"

Lots of lows

My 7 year old has been T1D for over 2 years, the honeymoon is long over. For the last week or so we've been having low after low. In the last 24 hours we've seen two BS in the 30s. This is not normal for us at all. I know you can see some lows a day or two preceding a stomach bug, but this has been for a solid week with no illness in sight. At first we didn't change anything because she'd been running high for a while (growth spurt perhaps). Now we've lowered her basal twice, .05 for each time…See More

"It doesn't limit the copay to $15 a month, it takes off a max of $50 of your copay down to a minimum payment of $15. We pay loads for insurance but still have high copays on test strips so our Copay is $100, the program takes it down to $50.…"

"We got pretty poor absorption on her thighs when we did try it. I don't want to double her insulin just to use a site. I suppose we can give it a try again, it's been a year."

debdebdebby13 replied to debdebdebby13's discussion 'sites for pod on school age kiddos' in the group OmniPod Users
"She's not 5ft 1in, she's 51" or 4ft, 3in. Only 7 years old, so her body is still very narrow. That's the main issue is there is no left/right wiggle room, it seems."
