  2. Hallie, I might be biased, but I think it looks good on her. :) One thing I love about the OmniPod is all the checks it runs on itself to make sure it is functioning correctly. And I remind myself of that every time we get one that starts to beeeeeep.

    Reassurance. Hope the transition goes smoothly for you guys!

  5. yeah! My hubby choose omnipod, too...he'll be starting within the month and I am excited to read about your experience. We may be switching Isaac over, too whenever possible, once we get past these teeny amounts of insulin all systems will be a go :)

  8. The OmniPod was my first-ever pump, and I loved it. Ultimately, I had some site absorption issues and skin sensitivity issues, so I had to move to a traditional pump. My advice to you is to rotate the Pod so that the same (large) area of skin it covers is not covered for more than 2 days in a row. Of course, your daughter is small, so she doesn't have a lot of sites for infusion of insulin anyway. Also, Insulet's customer support is wonderful. You'll have defective Pods from time to time, but they will replace them. I doubt you'll EVER have the Pods giving TOO much insulin, so hypoglycemia is not going to be related to Pods overinsulinizing. Underinsulinizing is more of an issue in some people, so just keep the Dex going, or test, test, test! Good luck. The food database is wonderful!

  14. I've been podding since July 1st, so I've got a whopping 12 days under my belt (pod?). But I love it! I have no other pumps to compare it to, since I've been doing MDI for 19 years since dx, but I do love it. YOu'll have to play around with bolusing or increasing basal around pod change time, but there's a ton of info out there, and obviously lots of the DOC people have pods and advice. Good luck, can't wait to hear how you like it!
