"well if the insulin is running down your chest then it wasnt an occlusion. if the pod is still giving insulin it's still working, it will sound the alarm if it is blocked, and not able to give you the insilin. If the cannula has fallen out of…"

"I am in the same situation, not sure what I`m going to do once my 400 strips I got from abbott are done. it's totally unacceptable that none of the companies providing us with strips are aware of this recall."

Hi Meh, i send out for the cd for the extension cd from Omnipod it arrived today, strange however that it is blank. go figure, I went to the American site and downloaded only the extension part and installed that and it works. so as long as you already have coPilot then the extension from the American site will work. Hope that helps.

Hi meh,

You may have noticed TuD hanging around the site. It's his 6th birthday this month, and his big international family of people with diabetes is growing.
Our 6th birthday fundraising campaign is on! Every dollar you donate allows TuDiabetes to reach 6 people touched by diabetes, giving them the opportunity to not be alone!

Please consider making a donation, as well as asking your friends and family to give what they can. TuD's birthday party will keep getting more guests as we raise more donations (see top of the home page). Let's help keep our family thriving and growing! Please share this message. Thanks!

I must admit, I am a Montrealer by marriage and location only! Born and bred in SW Ontario. However, my 11 year old T1D is a true Montrealer! Our concerns about choosing the OmniPod are (1) customer service issues (I've read a lot of negative comments about that from USA users) as well as (2) the pod failure issue. As well, is it true that it does not dose as precisely as the Animas. Have you heard that? Just out of curiosity, where are you followed (hospital/endo)? I also have a 19 yr old T1D who goes to the Jewish. Don't know if I love his doctor tho.

Hi meh,

Jrpup told me you had not received our recent fundraising message and that you wanted to see it, so I just sent it to your e-mail account linked to this TuD profile.  Would you like to start getting our bi-monthly newsletter?

Thanks for your interest, and your participating in the community!
