Hi, I am one of those in the omnipod on here. Am very happy with it. If I could fund dexcom and didn't mind tubed pumps I would probably go with the t-slim.
Do let me know if you gave any pod related questions
I'm on the pod, only thing that I'm not a fan off is the alarms, very loud. Not had any issues with blockages as I did with my tethered pumps, I have managed to rip a couple off, especially when its on my leg and in bed.
I would like to see some suitable alternatives, but I wouldn't like to go back to a tethered pump.
Hi @Beck89 great that you have had the chance to try out the pod before committing. Some of the blues on cannulas etc are heat sensitive, and need a time to get well attached. Others find that they react to some of the glues. Well worth checking things out first. It would be worth asking for a second trial.
As far as I know Accu Check now have a patch pump, Solo. I haven’t looked at it and know nothing more about it, but if you are interested in an alternative, (any good @megga) which may have a different glue, you could look at that.
I have always had tubed pumps and prefer those rather than having a lump stuck to me, but then I have never tried a patch pump.
