My daughter is 8 and she was just diagnosed 2 and 1/2 months ago and I am deciding on which to get her.An Omnipod or I-Port.She does not take a lot of insulin dosages right now.I am looking for something that will be easier for her.
I have tried the I-Port. I personally didn’t like it at all. I had a lot of trouble with the cannulas getting kinkied on the I-Port and to me the insertion of the I-Port also hurt. Also with the I-Port you can’t do more than one type of insulin. So say she was high at bedtime and was to take Lantus and then a correction dosage of fast acting insulin, you have to wait at least an hour before you can inject the second one. I am much happier since I got on the pump then I was when i tried the I-Port.
