"I hate to say but medicare is 100% RIGHT. THE OMNIPOD IS A VERY UNRELIABLE, DANGEROUS, FULL OF SUFFERING PIECE OF S**T. I have been in keto acidosis 30 times for failing pods THAT DON'T ALARM! Fidelis care does not cover the omnipod because of…"

help minimed or animas

Posted on November 9, 2010 at 5:37pm 1 Comment
