I am a Animas OneTouch Ping Pumper and I love it and it is truly fantastic! The wireless remote, carb counter and calculator for corrections are all so useful. When I first started the pump a little over 2 years ago I was given the option between many pumps like the Medtronix, Animas and Omnipod versions. The Omnipod at the time scared me and I wasn't sure if I would feel comfortable with the insulin resevoir being attached to me. Now, I have been researching the similarities and differences between the Animas One Touch Ping and the OmniPod and they are pretty similar in what they can do just different in the way that the omnipod is tubleless and the catheter inserts itself which I find both so wonderful! And what I've read about the differences has helped me learn about it a lot but what I want to know is from a personal user of a pump to an omnipod pump or just an omnipod user what they feel about it.
So ultimately, my questions are: What do users of the OmniPod like/dislike about it? Do you feel you have better control or the same as another pump? Did you use a different pump before and what do you find easiest/hardest about adjusting? Would you suggest the transition from the regular pump to the omnipod? Are there any difficulties you have found with the omnipod or the way its worn?
Please let me know what you think I am very interested in Omnipod!
