Re: [IP] 45 Day eval of OmniPod

More to come, as with any new technology it all takes some getting used to 
and I have had the Animas for so long that I was expecting an easy 
transition.  I will continue to play it out and hope for the best.  As for 
the 4 day download, My CDE told me I have to download every 4 days, it does 
for whatever reason keep 14 days worth on the PDM. Insulet is working on 
better software from what I was told.

As for the inclusion, it supposed to have an alarm just not sure if perhaps 
I had a defect POD.  More to come..
