Omni Pod Question

Posted on May 31, 2011 at 12:33pm 5 Comments

When I replace my pod on the stomach area, within the next day or so it becomes puffy and red in the window of the pod. Once I remove the pod it's REALLY itchy. Anyone else have this same problem?

Thanks for your help!!

Anyone using the Omni Pod Insulin Pump?

Posted on May 21, 2011 at 7:55am 6 Comments

I started the omni pod insulin pump Dec. 2010. Its been going really well up until about a month ago. Each time I take my pod off it leaves my skin red and irritated for days. Anyone else experiencing this? I've been using neosporin to heal the areas but they are not healing fast enough. I'm running out of places to put them.

Any suggestions?

You know I wish there was a thing called the internet & that this site was here 37 years ago. It would have not made me feel so alone for so many years. It's just so nice to hear that other's know what I feel (and here we do) Til this day explaning it to the member's of my family ..................well they don't get it and I have a 22 year old Type 1 daughter who when eating anything she wants is still 93 (was it) I've found that the older I get the badder I am w/ the diabetes.
