For those of you using tubed systems, are you required to change sites after three days? Also, when you change sites, are you throwing away existing insulin or do you just change the infusion set?
For the active(those who play sports/exercise) individuals, how do you guys feel having the tubing? Do you feel it restricts you in any way?
I’ve been an omnipod user for 4 years now and love the system, however, I’m becoming more attracted to medtronic since it displays cgm readings directly on the pump and I wouldn’t have to carry the dexcom with me.
also, the pods are not cheap. $300 for 1 month supply before insurance. How much are the infusion sets for medtronic? I’m thinking medtronic/tubed systems may be cheaper for long term use.
any info/feedback here is greatly appreciated. thanks guys!
