"Thats Great Dave! I too love them. I only ever had 1 bad situation with them and they sorted it out very quickly and everything was great. every time I call a Pod in I have nothing but the most wonderful people on the phone, and when I order a new…"
"do you use many places to put your pods? maybe moisturize a lot of the places you don`t put the pods tll you know you will have to put the pod back there. I have really dry skin on my arms in the winter, so while I put the pods on my stomach, legs…"
"I think ontario covers it..
I am in Quebec and in the same situation it only cover kids born after chosen date. I bite the bullet and got a loan to buy the omnipod and my insurance covers 270$ of the 300$ for each box of pods."
"I have been on the pods for a little more then a year, I never had atubed pump but the whole reason I picked omnipod is because I didn`t want to be attached. so omnipod works perfect for me... it is too bad that here in canada we don`t have as many…"
"they told me that it would be ready in 2 weeks when I got the new generation pump, and they would be sending it to me, I am getting a new box of pods tomorrow so maybe it will be with it, if not I will call and ask for it."
"I can't speak to the insurance part.
but it will be fine for all the jostling you do with your kids. I have been on the omnipod for a little over a year, and I am so glad I chose the omnipod, good luck in your choice! I am sure you will make…"
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.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY is only the beginning meh!! Wishing you all that is good in life and top it with more happiness and endless love.
BIG HUGS on your special day ♥
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!
