[IP] Re:OmniPd Insulin Delivery



 I know the OmniPod is no where near this slow. I just got done timing my Pod
and a unit a minute is wring by a factor of 3. It takes kust about 20 secons to
deliver a unit of insulin.
 And just why does this matter? I would argue if anything slow delivery is an
advantage as it allows the insulin to absorb better with less pooling. I know
there was another misunderstanding being spread about the OmniPod regarding
Bolusing. Once you have told it to Bolus you can go on your merry way. A hundred
mile from the PDM if you so choose. Still loving the Pods after 2 1/2 years and
finding the whole system light years ahead of conventional pumps.

The pump  delivers 0.05 U per click, one click every three seconds or  
so or  about one unit per minute- it does seem slow.
