My 6 year old daughter is newly diagnosed (Jan 23 of this year) and we started the omnipod in March. We’ve had a string of errors and I thought it may be due to static - she wears her pod on her bootie and I noticed every time it errored, she was outside playing on playground equipment, but I figured that couldn’t possibly generate enough static to create a problem.
Today her pod errored at school and she said she had just slid down the slide. Called the error in and they confirmed it was a static error. They suggested static guard sprayed on her clothes as a better alternative to sticking a dryer sheet in her pocket. So, a couple of questions:
- Have you guys had static issues?
- If Yes, did static guard/dryer sheet resolve them?
- Is the Pod really THAT sensitive to static??
- Is it really OK to spray static guard on clothes that will be up against her skin?
