New pods are worth the wait.

My podder has used the new system for couple of weeks after using the older system for a several years. We were excited about the smaller size, but the lighter weight has turned out to be more important to her. While there is a lot more confirming of all the input it is also nice to be able to give commands from farther away.See More

"I have a 13 year old who has used the Omnipod for 1 1/2 years. We have a high deductible so we pay 100%. For her there wasn't any decision. She didn't want the tubes and likes to be able to swim or shower without having to worry about it.…"

Hi Greg! Doing ok but can't get this headache to go away because of allergies. Have you notice more allergies going around in this time of the year? Mines is blown away and I have never experienced this before.

Trying to stay active but hard with this headache. Keep in touch. Patti

Hi there. No typically Caleb wears them for three days. Occasionally we see a rise to numbers on day three and then we change it. But lots of time it goes the three days plus the extra 8 hour grace period. Have you seen Caleb's vids with OmniPod?
