Hi! My 15 yr. old daughter (dx 3/09) just started on the Omnipod, so we're gleaning as much info. as we can. I have a question re: battery life of the pdm. Our nurse/trainer told us never to let the batteries get past 1/2 way because there has been some trouble with the pdm communicating with the pod if they get too low. I was told the battery life was 3 weeks, so I thought that would mean that at 1/2 way we'd be changing them every week and 1/2--not great, but okay. But actually, her pdm gets to half-way well before that, sometimes in just a few days. That could get pretty expensive to replace batteries every 3 days. What have your experiences been? Do you change at 1/2way? How often are you replacing batteries?
Thanks so much!
