Re: [IP] omnipod

I've been using the OmniPod for 9 months now, it was my first pump.  Love it. 
As with anything new, you have to find what works best for  you, but I have
had minimal problems and no issue with customer service.  I like not having
the tubing and I LOVE not having to insert the needle myself.  It's been a
great addition to my family and has improved my quality of life tenfold.

i'm on
the medtronic minimed insulin pump.
