Omnipod issues

OK I decided to join and post this blog because of all the issues I am having with the omnipod and Insulets refusal and failure to do anything about their defect.It is not a consistent failure, it varies from lot number to lot number.The main issue I am having is that if even almost literally a drop of water gets on the adhesive pad of the omnipod, the adhesive fails and the omnipod falls off.Insulet tried to say that it is my skin type.

Welcome home enyawface!
Take a peek at some the groups when you get a chance. Just go to the top of your page, and click on "Groups". Once in, you can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the space provided. Take in some of the blogs/discussions as well. The house in the photo is where Dr. Frederick Banting lived and had his medical practice in London, Ontario, Canada...before going to the University of Toronto to work on diabetes research, and ultimately the discovery of Insulin.

Hope you find the support and information you came looking for. Here is a useful link to get you on your way:
