I used Omnipod for about 5 or 6 years and was generally well pleased with it. I recently switched to the MM 630g because of Medicare coverage. (Omnipod doesn’t fit the definition of DME).
The pods are a bit awkward to wear because of their size and weight, but I thought that preferable to tubing. It was nice not having to disconnect in order to change clothes or shower or swim. I did accidently dislodge a pod a couple times, but I think I would have had more trouble with a tubed pump while working at physical labor, as I did.
I preferred wearing the pods on the back of my upper arms or on the outside of the upper thighs. Of course that may not work well if you’re very muscular. I did seem to have more problems with occlusions when wearing the pod on my thigh, but found it to be a good location if I was going swimming, for example, and didn’t want to advertise that I was wearing a medical device.
There are occasional problems with pods not working properly, which will try your patience, but Omnipod will replace them quickly if you call them. Keep their number handy. They will even reimburse you a limited amount for wasted insulin if the pod was very recently activated. (It’s not recommended, but you can withdraw some of the insulin from the pod with a syringe once it’s removed from your body, but you can’t get it all out).
Needing to replace the pod more often than every three days would be a real problem. I guess that’s the price you pay to not be connected to tubing. It was never an issue for me since I use no more than 40 units/day. I did have to use Skin Tac to insure the pods would stay stuck for three days.
All-in-all, I think Omnipod is a good option for many people. I would still be using it now if Medicare coverage wasn’t such a problem. However, considering the greater amount of insulin you use, I think I would prefer a tubed pump with greater insulin capacity. That being said, I hope Omnipod works well for you.
