indolent replied to MarlboroNick's discussion 'flying with the OmniPod' in the group OmniPod Users
"I've never had issues traveling. I usually keep the pod on my upper body and not on my legs when traveling. It just makes it easier to touch it when they ask you to do the hand swipe for explosives. One thing I never do is check pods and bring…"

indolent replied to IBelieve's discussion 'Anyone got Cigna to cover Freestyle Test Strips at Tier 1 or 2 level for use with Omnipod' in the group OmniPod Users
"Yes, I have Cigna and they cover the strips at 100%. As jbowler stated, they just needed a letter of medical necessity from my doctor."

indolent replied to SherryAnn's discussion 'Sticking Needle' in the group OmniPod Users
"Has anyone had this sticking issue when using a pod with that came with the updated syringes (the ones without the black gasket)? I've used 4 of these newer ones and have not had any sticking issues yet. I know that's a small sample size,…"

indolent replied to dishers's discussion 'Rechargeable batteries' in the group OmniPod Users
"Yeah, rechargeable work fine. I would guess it's an FDA requirement that they can't recommend them because, as Eric said, the power meter is inaccurate with them."

indolent replied to Christie Jensen's discussion 'Adhesive on Dexcom G4' in the group OmniPod Users
"I thought lotions reduced the effectiveness of the adhesives. Is there a specific moisturizer you use? I've tried pretty much everything Christie has tried, and then some, but am still getting some annoying irritation from the pods."

indolent commented on Mathew's group 'OmniPod Users'
"Officially they say you're not supposed to reuse it, but many people do without issues. I've reused insulin from day old pods before without issues."

indolent replied to joey's discussion 'getting ready for summer' in the group OmniPod Users
"I've never personally had any issues with insulin going bad while inside an active pod. Even on vacation when I'm out in the 90-100 degree heat multiple days in a row. In my experience, as long as the vials are stored properly, sunlight…"

indolent replied to joey's discussion 'getting ready for summer' in the group OmniPod Users
"I'm pretty sure insulet's 30 minutes underwater rule relates more to the adhesive than the pod itself. The pods are sealed really well, I'd bet they could be underwater all day without any issues. It's the adhesive I always have…"

indolent replied to artwoman's discussion 'Airports: Ones to use (?) ones to avoid'
"I've never had a problem with the 9 or 10 airports in the US that I've been through. The inconvenience of arranging which airports to travel through based on a few anecdotal experiences people have had would be way worse than any…"

indolent replied to Rob's discussion 'I Need Help Finding A New Omnipod Supplier !!!' in the group OmniPod Users
"My pods come direct from Insulet and they charge my insurance around $430/box. Pricing of this stuff is so random..."

indolent replied to Cmcardenas's discussion 'Insulin pump and airport/TSA procedures'
""1. Neither your pump nor yourself should go through one of those Porno Scanners - demand a pat-down. Several EU Countries have banned those machines." Just a note, the EU only banned the x-ray backscatter machines, with are rarely, if…"

indolent replied to walkingonthemoon's discussion 'Omnipod Settings: Different bolus settings for each meal'
"In the pdm: Settings > System Setup > bolus/basal/calcs > ratios/factors/targets > IC ratio. Here you can set the ic ratio for various times of day, down to half hour increments."
Feb 25, 2014
indolent replied to Clare's discussion 'Urgent product recall'
"" I just called Insulet and asked if the recall was legit and was told yes it is, that the recall had just happened and she thought Abbott would be sending out the recall information to customers, not them. " This is a disappointing…"
Feb 24, 2014
indolent replied to Elizabeth's discussion 'Those who've used a test strip code other than 16 on your PDM' in the group OmniPod Users
"I've checked both old and new PDM's against other meters and the pdm's always seem slightly lower. But, compared to my labs and a1c levels, my pdm is always very close to those results so I've always stuck with 16."
Jan 10, 2014
indolent replied to dalajosa's discussion 'Spare pump for travel overseas?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I'm not sure if Insulet has an official spare pump policy, but I talked to my local rep a couple years ago when I was going on a cruise and he gave me a loaner for the trip without any issues."
Dec 3, 2013
indolent replied to Delilah Brien's discussion 'Anyone figure out a way to OPT OUT of the endless "confirmation" steps on the new PDM?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I try and change as close the the 80 hour limit as possible, so I frequently change right before bed. I was doing the battery removal thing for a while too. But, this last time, when I went to re-install the batteries in the morning, I got a PDM…"
