"I had to change my pod yesterday and the new pod did not double-beep while filling. It primed just fine as well as delivered a bolus shortly after with no beep to signify the completion of the bolus. I ran through the diagnostics steps to check the…"

"Congratulations SandyG!!! I have been using the OmniPod for a little over a month now and I am loving it. I am approved for the DexCom as well but like you put it off until I have the OmniPod dialed in. The first couple of weeks was very exciting.…"

"Have you tried using your food library built in the PDM? It's a great source of fat and carbs in just about every food you could think of. I've been on the pod since 2007 and I love it. Good luck."

"Also... I was so worried about the carb counting and it is so not a problem. If I can't find a source I can easily 'guesstimate'. Just eating too many bad carbs is still a problem. LOL."

Since going live I have had to make some tweaks to my settings (so easy with the PDM) and have tried multiple sites with out any problems.
