I just started on the OmniPod today and have found Day 1 to be quite a bit better, in terms of both BG control and convenience, than my previous MDI regimen. I have a question about boluses – I am aware that the PDM needs to be within communication range of the pod when you are programming insulin delivery, such as boluses. My question is, does the PDM need to be within range the whole time a bolus is being delivered, or just until you confirm that you want to initiate the bolus?
I asked my diabetes educator about it this morning during training, and we concluded at the time that the question was somewhat moot because we were under the impression that boluses are delivered within a few seconds. However, I soon found out that it actually takes a while to deliver a bolus – not a real long time, but certainly not just a few seconds.
