[IP] Re: Bye Bye Omnipod - insulin-pumpers-digest V12 #3

That's good to know Nora that the Onmi-Pod holds up in swimming well.  I
didn't know that.  I use an Animas 2020 because of being a water babe
myself.  Health Canada is still humming / haaing about allowing the Omnipod
into our country - so for now - I am patientc - tap, tap.  Though I did met
a NZ CDE at a diabetic conference one time - he wore the OmniPod and
Dexcom - he told me the trick to get around to having an Omni-Pod / Dexcom -
get a USA endo to prescribe the Omni-Pod - and then use a friends USA
address to ship to (gotta work around the system sometimes).  I live close
to USA border - so it's always been something I've considered doing as a few
American friends have offered to take in packages that can't come across to

Subject: RE: [IP] Bye Bye OmnipodI love my OmniPod.  I have had issues with
bad pods - they seem to run in
boxes, if one in a box goes bad probably a couple more will as well.  They
have always been replaced with no charge, with the next order or immediately
with overnight shipping if necessary.
The PDM controls the pod - makes it do whatever you need for it to.
Occasionally when the pod is on my upper arm I will bump it on the car door
or something and knock it loose but to me it is so much better than tubing.
I'm such a klutz I'd probably hang myself in the tubing.  Plus I'm a real
water baby and the pods being so water proof is a big plus to me as well.
