"got mine yesterday (Mon) I am in Ontario, how about everyone else? I hope the pods will be as good as the ones now, not to eager to change, would be nice to hear of some people that have not had any problems with the new ones. :-)"
"Yup, got my letter this morning. I have few complaints about the current version, so I'm not in a huge rush, but like the idea of something a little smaller on my arm when I cut corners too closely. Lets hope the glitches we've been…"
"I hardly have problems when I have them on my thigh. I find putting a band for life or something like this over the pod helps a lot, but where on the upper thiigh are you wearing it? outer or top or mor inner?"
"I have this issue using the "new" pods. It seems odd -lots of resistance. I started in August and have had about 10 failed pods - almost always as I am filing or within hours of putting it on. I wish someone else would come out w/ a…"

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.
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!
