I have been Type 1 for nearly 40 years. In August 2013 I made the change from syringe and bottle to the OmniPod pump. Wow, what an incredible mistake!! Within the first month I went through two months of pods and an additional 2 months worth of insulin due to pod deactivations. The extra insulin was not covered by our insurance so was completely out of pocket. This situation continued to be a... Read more

When I first found Omni Pod, I was very excited to have a pump without tubing. If only I could go back. Over the last two days I've had consistently high blood sugars without logical reason. Sometime it looks as though the cannula is in, when in fact it's not. Lately there have been more and more similar issues. As soon as my insurance will approve replacement, I'll go back to Medtronic, the... Read more

I've been using Omnipod since July 2013 (my first pump experience) and have had a very similar experience. It seems like I'll go a couple weeks and think things are finally on track and then the next week or two will be full of problems. I've literally went through 3 pods in the last 2 hours thanks to various alarms. Yes, they replace them but they don't replace all the wasted insulin or make... Read more

Started using Omnipod in July 2014 have had 10 pods go bad either communication error or the pod will not eject into skin I had to tap the pod to insert cannula. I am going back to Medtronics ! I have never had a problem with Medtronics. Either the PDM is bad or the pods are bad. Plus You have to change every three days. Medtronics you have to change every days also,but I could go an extra day... Read more

Not being tethered to a tube, having the freedom to go swimming/ surfing and not having to worry about my insulin pump has made my life so much bettter.. The Omnipod allows me to go about my day without having to disconnect and miss any insulin because of my lifestyle! I forget I'm wearing my pump. It's discreet, and so easy to use.. I can still wear all my dresses and not worry about where I'll... Read more

My 15 year old son has used the Omnipod since 2008. The newer, smaller pods are a nightmare. If there are people contemplating this device, run far from it! We've had 28 pod failures this year alone! The "screech of death": There is no rhyme or reason to any of the pod failures. He can just be sitting there watching TV and it will go off. He can be sleeping and it goes off. In the... Read more

I ABSOLUTELY HATE INSULET AND THE OMNIPOD. I have used 2 boxes of 10 in 1 week because after placing the pod on, 20 minutes later the alarm goes off saying pod failed. Insulin is to expensive to keep filling these pods and then it fails. I called customer service and was told by some very rude person that since I had bought them I can do whatever I want with them. Enough said I don't be using... Read more

I was considering using the OmniPod because of the lack of tubing and the insulin supply lasting a bit longer than the Animas pump I'm using now. The Animas pump works well, but the tubing is a bit of a pain, getting caught on things and pulling the inset completely out at times. Also, the insulin supply only lasts for a couple days. Your reviews have discouraged me from even giving it a try. ... Read more

The new PDM/PODs have way to many loud beeping alarms that drive me and others in meetings crazy. Why not 100% vibrate alarms like other Pumps have. Do I need to be constantly reminded to check my blood 1 hour after a POD change when I am trying to sleep. I check my blood 10 times a day, leave me alone after a POD change. And all the loud alarms on the new PDM/PODs ....really.....very... Read more

After much frustration and research I believe I have figured out why my pods fail at such a hight rate. I hope this helps anyone who has had similar issues. I'm told the failure has to do with the activation of the pod. (The failure usually occurs about 24 hours after filling the pod). When filling the pod the right side of the PDM needs to be touching or right next to the pod. This is so all... Read more
