nevada replied to dishers's discussion 'Basal getting higher' in the group OmniPod Users
"Seasons - more sun - more heat on the pod - affect my basal needs. I try to wait and see if it is a trend rather than a fluke. After I am convinced that I need to change something - I copy the old basal and change the name of the new one (less 1-4…"

nevada replied to Jack's Mom's discussion 'Spot Recall of Freestyle / Omnipod Test Strips by Abbott' in the group OmniPod Users
"My PDM is acting up. It doesn't recognize that a test strip is in the machine - or it goes back to the home screen and starts the process over before I can use the test strip to test. I called Insulet. First she wanted to blame me - she implied…"

"Just curious....How and why do you have 2 G4 receivers? I can see the benefit with a child - 1 with the parent and 1 with the child. Does your insurance pay for a new one every so often - or did you purchase an extra one? Aren't they warranted…"
