Diasend: I joined, uploaded omnipod and dexcom - Now what does it mean?

I read about Diasend Diasend linkon this forum. Thank you!! I was able to download my data and see both my omnipod and dexcom information. Yea!! I can see that if I also add exercise to my dexcom, that may help me understand 'swings'. I can see the benefit of this to use at my doctor's appointments. My endo doesn't even have any software to download my data. Anyone have hints as to how to interpret this information? What 'screen' do you use?…See More

nevada replied to Kay459's discussion 'New to Omnipod- can you help me figure out what I am doing wrong?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I find that the pod works better when I press down on the pod over the cannula while it is activating. If I don't have a suction - proved when it is removed by seeing the proofed up triangle - I am not absorbing the insulin well."
