We have been using Omnipod for a week now and yesterday we did our second pod change. The first two were on her arms and we saw similar absorbency in her arms as we did on MDI with shots in her arms. That seems to be the best place for her, absorbency wise.
For yesterday's pod change we put it on her hip and just like before, the absorbency is not quite as good as on her arms, just like with MDI (thighs being the worst place for her, for the first 1.5 hours it's like she hasn't gotten any insulin, THEN it finally kicks in). Since then we've been seeing slightly higher overall readings and they have been a little harder to bring down.
Does anyone experience this and have a separate basal rate for different infusion sites?
I have done a temp basal of +25% during the day to see if we can combat it, and if it stays more in range then I guess I will make a new basal to use with hip sites.
