Have had this omnipod for about 1 month, lost one due to it not sticking well, lost another from being in the pool, lost two others due to sight failure!! Hello this pod is horrible! What a waste of money not to mention all the insulin I lost for my son. I was ensured it was good for active people which my son is. Ok sold!, what a mistake! Do not recommend! Add comment

I decided to switch to the omnipod because I am an avid surfer and a yoga teacher as well. I spent the majority of my free time doing active things outdoors and always struggled with the tubing of my previous insulin pump. I have been on the wireless omnipod for now 3 weeks and I LOVE it! My sugar has already began to improve and its sooooooo nice to not have to worry about getting my pump wet when I'm at the beach or hiking. My biggest... Read more

It seems that Abbott makes Freestyle test strips and that they are the ONLY strips that work with Omnipod. The are non-formulary RX meaning that both Health Republic and now Oscar Health don't want to cover them. In both cases it took 2 weeks to convince my health insurance provider that Freestyle Lite strips will not work. It seems that Freestyle is the most expensive strip on the market and Abbott has made sure that there is nothing else that... Read more

You need to understand the rules of pump therapy before using one. 1st of all, GREAT product! My A1C has lowered from 7.1 avg to 5.9 after only 6 months! I have a CGM to assist with the ebb & flows of BG levels which definitely helps! There are ZERO issues with POD's. One thing you can do is "wrap" your POD if it's on your leg or arm with a tennis sweat band, etc. It will keep you from banging it on doorways or sleeping on it wrong. (This... Read more

I am an Animas pump user currently and have done tons of research on the OmniPod because I'm basically obsessed with getting it! I have read most of these reviews and it seems most of the problems are with the new smaller generation of the pod, most of the people with this complaint get their pods from a unsupported service for the pods like eBay. If you get pods from anywhere but 1. Insulet through mail, or 2. Through your local drugstore, the... Read more

I too have lots of pod failures for no reason! I'm a RN and know what I'm supposed to do. Horrible customer service, on hold over 45 minutes to try to get replacement pods. Going to go back to Medtronic pump. Had one for years, not one failure!!!! Add comment

Really sorry to hear of your issues with Omnipod. In the 5 + years I've been using them I've experienced less than one failure per box. In the last several failures at least one was operator error (mine) when I did not follow the prompts as presented. I had gotten into the bad habit of doing the pod change from memory not following the prompts! Bad idea. In the Aviation business we have the expression that "Check Lists Save Lives". In other...

I have been on Omnipod well over 20 years and love it. Hopefully by the time I'm 65 Medicare will see the advantage to this system and approve it for payment.. Regarding your problem with doctor's office downloading. Omnipod just released the for Omnipod users and their doctors. I have the program at home and it works great! Omnipod helped me get it loaded and it's FREE to Omnipod users--CALL THEM! My doctors office has the old... Read more

My doctor and I find it impossible to download the information for her to be able to help treating me. She is ready to give up and have me go back to med-tronic.  I like no tubing, but why have it, if my dr cannot access the information needed.  I am VERY disappointed in omni-pod.  Was told to go to, but they want $59.00 for ability to download information.  What now??????  Other than the tubing I have not...

I switched to the Omnipod because I despised Medtronic's tubing and heavy pump that I had to clip to my clothing. I was initially delighted with Omnipod when I started using the pdm and pods about 18 months ago, but now I have to give up on Omnipod. The pdm and pods are so problem-ridden and malfunction so often that my health is in jeopardy. I've had THREE pdms suddenly go haywire and have to be replaced. I've had scores and scores of pods...
