    Our Omnipod beeps at us when we are filling it at around 100 units... I am wondering how to adjust this amount? I have searched that PDM and cannot find how to adjust that. For now, we are fine around 100 units, but there are certain times I'd like to fill it with more.... just curious how others handle this.
    Thanks!

    You can fill it with any amount from 80 (I think) up to 200 units. It beeps when it beeps and that doesn't really matter (except if it didn't beep you would have a problem). I fill it with 85 units and it takes a second to beep after I am done and I don't have any issues.

    Beeping is good. My daughter is still on honeymoon, so we fill the bare minimum amount. If it does not beep, it means I haven't hit the 80u minimum amount, and I have to add more insulin.

    When it hits 80u, it beeps, but you can add up to 200u maximum.
