Diabetic since: March 3, 2004
Pumping since: May 25, 2010
Pump type: OmniPod
Pros: Tubeless, wireless PDM communication, hands-free cannula injection, super friendly customer service, Pods are waterproof (PDM IS DEFINITELY NOT)
Cons: Okay, after about 3 years on this pump, I have a lot to bitch about. Sure, it started out great… tubeless, wireless PDM communication, etc. But hear me out:
Whew… Closing comments: My pump nurse has told me that OmniPod is working on making their pods “smaller,” but whether that means “slimmer” or smaller lengthwise, I’m not sure. I really enjoyed this pump when I started it, but now, it just doesn’t fit my lifestyle anymore. I know switching to a pump with tubing seems like taking steps backwards, but I’m in need of a change. Any suggestions are welcome! Right now I’m looking into the One-Touch Ping or the Accu-Check Spirit!
