Re: [IPp] Omnipod Pump System



My daughter who is 12 has been using it since February. She was doing shots
before so never tried any other pumps.

We have had few minor issues in the beginning, but Insulet has been supportive
with good customer service.My daughter says she loves it. It also works great
with her volleyball schedule.
 In short we find it very convenient and user friendly. Keep in mind there
will
be a learning curve you have to go through just like in anything else...
Hope this helps,

Didem

Hi

I too am considering the Omnipod for my daughter, so would be interested in
opinions!! I think it looks great, but our nurse tells me it is quite
cumbersome
Thanks
Heather
