I was working in the yard this weekend and was sweating to the point where my pod on my abdomin came very loose and I had to replace it. I had just put it on that morning. I guess it's just another thing to be aware of using the Omnipod!!

Not only the Omnipod. I wear the MM and it's also something I have to watch for

Check into the skin adhesive Mastisol. I know if you call MM they will send you a sample skin adhesive package which will have various things in it. As far as Omnipod i don't know. Mastisol is surgical strength skin adhesive and works great. I use it and my infusion sets don't come off even with showering and swimming with them on.
