Kimberly replied to Kay459's discussion 'New to Omnipod- can you help me figure out what I am doing wrong?' in the group OmniPod Users
"If you've found a solution to making the pods work, then great! If not, it's entirely possible that she could be having a reaction to the catheter material. I know that there are folks who are allergic to the Teflon, and have to use pumps…"

Kimberly replied to Bonnie's discussion 'Pod Problems' in the group OmniPod Users
"I've had basically the same experience as Jaybear. A little less than a year ago, there were one or two bad lots that got sent out. I had multiple pods quite after 24 hours, which was very unusual. But since Insulet fixed that issue or dumped…"

Kimberly replied to Kimberly's discussion 'Adhesive' in the group Dexcom Users
"Right? After 80 hours, my pods do NOT want to come off. I think I've taken some skin off with those before."

Kimberly replied to Kimberly's discussion 'Adhesive' in the group Dexcom Users
"Thanks for that tip. I get itchy around day 7 which makes getting to day 12 or 13 (which seems to be my max time) very difficult. I'll try that. Oddly enough, my last Opsite application did the same as my Dex tape - it came right off after…"

Laura replied to Kimberly's discussion 'Adhesive' in the group Dexcom Users
"No kidding! The quality of 'stick' has definitely gotten worse. I wrote them a comment lately that they should talk to the Insulin pump people and get some ideas. Kind of makes me mad."

"I always add some Tegaderm patches on day 1. I've been able to get at least 6 weeks out of doing that, with a few minor repairs along the way."

"Thanks for the tips, I plan to use the Skin-tac and opsite tape, esp with summer coming. We had a very warm day and I was working in the yard, I looked down and my sensor was on the ground ;-( - I was sweaty....."

hi kimberly but my friend was already embarassed and in a bad way and I dont think insisting that she cause a scence would have been the best option right then and there . I think we did the best thing we could in the choice to go home and try another flight in a couple of days . well for the trips from now on we will just do Mdi s which is what I do cause I cannot afford a pump . so the best option we figure is that since no one has bothered to return her phone call . thanks for your weighing in though appreciated very much .

Too cool! I wanted to be a robotic engineer when I grew up, but somehow I became an artist instead. Now I am moving back into the technology field once again. Where once tech'y stuff was a hobby and art was my job, I am almost done switching those both around, heh.

Take care, amiga.

I noticed you made the switch to the pump fairly quickly, if you don't mine me asking, was it an easy transition for you?

Hi Kimberly. Pretty cool pics/job. Just thought I'd reach out and say hi and ask if you know Salty & Sweet. She's another ME/Robotics type on the forum. Thought you guys might want to hook up.
