My daughter, Karlee started the Omnipod in May 2010, she has been a diabetic for 4 years, she absolutely loves this pump! She never wanted a pump until she saw this one, without any tubing, she said she had to have it! It is the best thing that has ever happened to her. She runs cross country, track , she is in the band and will be in the marching band next year in high school, she ever stops! This is a Godsend. Her A1C dropped from 8.8 to 7.0 in 6 months. She loves not having to get anymore shots. In fact another friend of hers, just started the pump within the last few days, and he is excited to have started it. His mother is the person who told us about the pump in the first place but her son was reluctant to begin the Omnipod, but Karlee is a daredevil, she will try anything that has to do with her diabetes easier to deal with and this has made it a breeze. Thank you Omnipod!!!
