Red infusion site

Hi. I’m new to pumping. I started the omnipod 12-30-08. My infusion site is really red. My bs is o.k. but the book says to change the pod. Oh and also I’m due to change it tomorrow. So should I change it or not? I sure hate to waste insulin and a day on the pump. Thanks

I sometimes get red spots when I have my pod on, too. If it doesn’t hurt or it doesn’t seem to be affecting my levels I don’t change it early. Most of the times it is red it doesn’t hurt…unless there is some blood or pain I wouldn’t worry about it.

I am an omnipod user as well but I haven’t had that happen before. I think if your bg is okay and there is not any pain then it should be fine.
