I am a new OmniPod user, the first few days were perfect however the other day I encountered 2 pod alarms and also an occlusion alarm. I have change the site from the buttocks to the arm - I feel because of the bad experience I am now becoming over cautions and trying to avoid too much arm movements - should I really just carry on as I normally would forgetting I’m wearing a pod - and put the alarms down to the buttocks as not a good site for me?
What are other good areas to wear the pod? From previous pump and injection sites I need to try and avoid the stomach / front area.
I have also found after taking my breakfast bolus I tend to run high, when taking the same amount I have previously taken using my old pump, so it seems as if the pod takes a while, like me, to wake up the morning. I have noted in other discussion there is recommendations to take the bolus sooner. Where I have a bad day I’m not sure if this is just normal for the pods / how it works for me and I just need to make the necessary adjustments or a pod error?
