I have been a type 1 diabetic for 28 years. It took me a long time to try an insulin pump (2006) and my first one was the medtronic. I started using the omnipod a year ago and I love it. There are a couple of draw backs for me. First I do 2 exercise classes a day and they fall off easy because of sweat. I do use skin tac wipe but someitme it just comes off. I have also had many issues with occlusion errors on my PDM and having to get up in the middle of the night to change out my pod? Any body else have these issues?
I have been WAITING for the smaller pods and improved PDM to be released for 2012 but it looks like maybe 2013. I also need some imput on other sites to wear the pod. I wear it on my upper and lower abs, lower back and butt. I haven't tried my arms or legs yet though just scared it will be too bulky or rip off.
I love that I have finally found this site. I would love to hear from some more users and their experiences.
