Sorry if this has been talked about already, but I’m currently fighting a 400+ blood sugar and don’t have the brain energy to search further.
I was set up with the OmniPod Dash last Thursday and I’m not impressed so far. I’ve yet to find a site that isn’t insanely uncomfortable while sleeping (I don’t have one set sleeping position and don’t understand how people do). I’ve tried both sides of my abdomen (where my previous pump, the Medtronic 670G, was), my left arm, and now my left leg and my blood sugars haven’t been below 224. This morning, I tried putting the pod on my right leg, stood up, and the change in position/skin caused the adhesive to just pop right off. I also got a super rude awakening at 6:30am my the pod nonstop screaming at me, even though the PDM couldn’t detect it. I had to search a YouTube video of how to destroy a paperclip and get it to stop, but I swear to God I was a minute away from smashing it with a hammer.
Sorry for the obvious rage, but is there anything I’m missing about what makes the OmniPod God’s gift to diabetics? It feels like it was made by people who thought it was a good idea in theory but have never actually worn a pump, much less are diabetic. So far the only pros are not being constantly tethered to something and that my insurance covers it.
