Thank you for your help. I think I found what I am looking for in the (not yet on market) Calibra Bolus patch. It consists of a mechanical device solely that delivers bolus amounts only, no basal. I don’t mind doing my once a day pen injection of my long acting Lantus. I want to avoid too many fast acting injections of small amounts. With the cost of insulin, I sure don’t like wasting 2 units to prime the needle if I am only going to inject 5 units at a time, several times per day, in addition to my mealtime insulin, just to have my coffee or very tiny snack. It appears that the Calibra is exactly what I need when it comes on the market, expected this year. It is designed for both type 1 and 2, but much more suited to type 2 patients.
I met someone about a year ago (that has since moved away) and was in very poor control on oral meds (type2). She had a small plastic device placed on her stomach at a clinic. She would fill the device with insulin and pressed a button to bolus. There were NO tubes or cannulas, no separate device, just the beige plastic device attached to her skin. I do not know what it was called and did not get to ask her all the details. It was much smaller than the Omnipod, shaped very differently, and was tubeless. The only thing she told me was she filled it with insulin and then pressed the button to bolus when she needed it. I wish I could contact her and find out what it was called.
