Latest set of Pods are defective - 3 out of the last 7 have stopped working while atleast half full of insulin. Give POD ALARM and no other information. Omnipod usually replaced the defective pods, but I am losing 300 units of insulin, that I don't get back. This is...Read more
I had this pump for 4 years and I am paying for it with my eyes. Therasense test strips were recalled because they were giving lower than actual readings by as much as 100 points so I thought I had lower bloodsugar than I did. I started to realize something was wrong...Read more
Omnipod - Noisy and inconvient alarms

Omnipod - Love this product, love the service
I am an Omnipod wearer. I LOVE this product because it helps me manage my Diabetes better than shots AND their support (to me) has been exceptional any time I need help with my order or with product questions.

Omnipod - Great company
I had a couple of occlusion they replaced them . Also sense i put the pod to the right of pdm as close as possible i have not had any more problems . I also use skintac to help hold them on only minor skin irritation.
Very minor issues with the pump. I like the wireless capability, and the fact that it becomes hidden. I've used a Medtronic pump for years. Being a person that is very active physically and work outs 2 - 3 times a week, the Omipod becomes something I don't have to...Read more
I received the Omnipod at about 1 1/2 years before going on Medicare. As it turns out Omnipod is not covered by Medicare. It would have been nice that Insulet fore warned me. Now I must pay for my pods, $300/month and Medicare will only allow I pod every 5 years. If I...Read more
