My daughter just started the Omipod insulin pod. So far mixed results. Still trying to get rates established but it’s looking like she is going to like it. She has AC1s in the 10 range so we are excited to see her average being 101 for the week which has never happened.
My questions to those that use Omipod - 1) how often have you experienced pod failure? We’ve only had one so far and of course, it was right after I loaded with 300 units of insulin. I think it was placement issue more than anything - it had blood in the cannula and then was fogging up the screen and hurting whenever she moved.
2nd question - has anyone tried to get the insulin back out of the pod when it fails? I’m worried that my insurance is not going to pay for extra insulin for pod malfunctions.
