"I've successfully sold cgm sensors in the past on eBay, but recently they've cracked down on it and taken my listing down. Kinda lame since I'm actually helping people in the world and also selling them at a much reduced price; a…"

kchannell replied to Santiago Jimenez's discussion 'POD no - SHOTS yes ?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I was totally having the same issue with absorption seemingly getting worse over time, at times I felt like the pod was doing nothing at all. I think the key is to rotate more frequently and make sure you stay 2 inches away from a previous injection…"

"Thanks for the tip to not use lithium batteries or rechargeable batteries, my PDM always switches on and off and I thought it was just because of poor product design. I'm guessing it's because of those rechargeables I've been using,…"
