Hi Shadow (Michelle?)
I have both the Opod and the Dexcom system. (I’m approaching the two year anniversary of my diagnosis, so I am most definitely a newbie compared to you!)
Can you explain what you mean by ‘wearing two devices?’ I keep my PDM (personal diabetes manager) in its case along with my test strips, glucose tabs, etc. on my desk, in my purse, at home when I run, etc (not on me). As far as my Dex, I keep that clipped to my purse during classes, on my night stand during the evening, and in my hand when I run. Perhaps you mean two sites? Although the Dex isn’t a site exactly. Anywho, can you clarify before I babble anymore?
I also wouldn’t recommend getting a new pump and a new CGM at the same time. It’s a bit overwhelming to work both out at the same time.
@Tabby: I’m sorry you’ve had so many skin reaction problems with the oPod. I experienced some rashes/intense itching too. I tried placing a Tagederm below the Pod and have had pretty good success with keeping water out from under the Pod when I shower.
I vote oPod + Dex. I know nothing else about anything else (except Minimed, which IMHO is not a good choice).
Wishing you luck-
