I'm in the process of getting on the OmniPod! My newly diagnosed T1 friend swears by it and pushed me to take a leap of faith and make my life easier without 6+ shots a day on two insulins and multiple tests. I'm ready. The day I decided and met with the doc I cried the entire day. It brought up a wave of emotions for me. It was very hard to explain to people that do not deal with this disease why it brought so But it did. I'm SOOO old school. 15 years into this disease I do extremely well with my daily routine and shots. But 6 shots a day for 15 years? WOW. I would also like to normalize my levels. My A1C has crept up due to my crazy life and schedule. It's time for me to continue to kick this disease in the arse!! I will control it and it will not control me! I'm excited, scared, optimistic and ready for this new adventure.

Way to go! Even though I had many friends on the pump, who love them, I resisted, and even after finding the OmniPod in 2008 it took me some time to come around. I look forward to your progress.

The OmniPod is one of the best decisions you will make. I have been using it for about 3+ years now and love. A1C has been 5.5 to 6.5 for the past 6 years. Used Medtronic Minimed before the OmniPOD and like the OmniPod much better.
