We have the Ping and are very happy with it. Our son (and we) want to get the Omnipod through cut the cord and use it for the summer. I am thinking it will eliminate all of the unhooking, catch up bolusing, taking off for amusement park rides, etc. Except our endo's office is reluctant to write the script for it. It is not one of the options that they offer their patients, and they are not contacted with them for training, so all training would go through Omnipod. Fine by me. They claim that when they did have a contract with Omnipod, their patients had all kinds of adhesion problems, pods failing, falling off, etc. And that one patient had a pod fall off in the middle of the night and then they woke up in the morning in DKA. (hard to imagine, because don't they alarm?) I am feeling like they are basing their opinions on old information. I know people sometimes have these issues but I am willing to spend my own $199 and if it totally sucks, no problem, I'm out $199 and we'll go back to the Ping (which we would do in the fall anyway). Can anyone offer an opinion here? We love our CDE and NP but overall I am not as impressed with the practice - they seem slow to adopt new technologies. We are equidistant to another children's hospital so it's not like we don't have options. My goal with getting the Omnipod is to have diabetes intrude on his life the least this summer. He is an active kid on the swim team who is in the pool and playing all day. The Omnipod seems the best way to do this for the summer.
