Been on the Omnipod for a little more than 2 weeks. The first week was great, a lot better than expected especially after reading about all its faults. No problems whatsoever with a 95% time in range and average BG of 108. Then this past week its been almost like it stopped working. No errors, no leaking, but no matter what it was next to impossible to bring my BS down. I would eventually get it down but only after bolusing 3x the amount I normally would. Tried everything… different sites, changing the POD daily, nothing worked.
So this morning I woke up high and said F this POS, I’m going back to injections and all day everything was normal. I have been racking my brain all day wondering what is the problem with it. Took apart used pods to see how much insulin was used, normal.
Then about 15 minutes ago it occurred to me, the first week I was pulling novolog from one of my pens, and the second week was from a new vial of novolog from Walgreens. I’ve been on insulin for over 20 years and have never got bad insulin but I really cannot think of what else could be going on. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
