Re: [IPp] Omnipod Pump System

This is very well written, thanks for sharing.  We are an experienced 
pumping family and considered the Pod a couple years ago but my then 10 year 
old felt it was too big (even though she is in the 90%-100% on the 
height/weight chart) .  I think we will consider it again the next go around 
but I am curious what you mean by IOB considers corrections only.  Can you 
elaborate a little for me?  I sort of recall this being an issue for us as 
part of our decision; because we are used to another approach, but I need a 
refresher. Thanks for your help.
