Last week my Omnipod failed me. I am not sure what actually happened. BS was about 125.
I took my normal insulin amount based on my carb/ insulin ratio
and waited my normal 20 min before I eat in the am so my bg does not shoot up too fast. Within 20 min my bs was trending down with arrows straight down stating I was going to 55 soon. Double checked with the meter twice and got 34 and 42.
I panicked. I thought I had made a human error. The next meal I was about 145, I bolused for my meal with extra vigilance and cut my pre-bolus time to 10 min. and In about 15min I hit 67. I did not know what to think. I was double-checking all sensor numbers with the meter. This was the last day for the sensor and pod. I change my I/C ratio and basal to avoid this happening again, However, I was high like over 200 with the change for about a week. Went back to my previous setting and all was fine again.
Concluded the pod shot out too much insulin during boluses. Contacted Omnipod and reported it as a medical issue. I told them I was going to post this issue on this forum to see if anyone else has had this problem. This has not happened to me before. Used pods for 6yrs. Insulin was not expired.
