Re: [IP] MM to Omnipod Advice

question:  Is the Omni a "relative of MM 772 or made from a different  
 company? My staff only issues the MM, but would like to be knowledgable of the
different kinds out there for future. Thanks!  Sorry I can't help with  
your concerns

I have  changed from the MiniMed 722 to the Omnipod in the last 6 weeks, and
would  like feedback from anyone who has done the same, positive or 
cautionary.  I
love not having a tube, and the PDM is easier to read than the old 722  
screen. I
am finding that I can bump/dislodge the pod more easily than my  old 
sites, but it seems that with no tubing to deal with, I can  use new 
areas, my upper arms in particular, which I like a lot,  plus the water 

Anyone else have comments we can all  learn from?

Subject: [IP] toenail surgery

Janet -

You  asked about toenail removal - I was thinking about this a year ago 
also -
I  haven't had it done yet as the podiatrist showed me how to keep about 
1/4  of
the side of my toenail cut clear down - it isn't easy to do - and of  course
you have to be able to get "contorted" to be able to see and hold  your foot
really good to cut the nail yourself - however it has worked for  me so far.
Anyway - I googled something along the lines of "toe nail  surgery" or "toe
nail removal".  Amazing - but many people have wrote  about it after having 
done - and some people even have step by step  pictures they took along the 
during the surgery - so I would advise  googling it - you will get a really
clear "picture" and story about how it  is currently being done.
