Hi All, I'm new to the forum. DD 12 years old dx'd Mar08. We just started an Omnipod trial Monday. We are so excited about the tubeless system and all the advantages Omnipod has to offer. But I've done alot of reading on the forums and I'm really worried about the unexplained high bgs with the pod. So rather than jump right in, I asked for a trial. DD spent last week on saline with the pod. Everything went great. But that's not much of a test. Her bgs weren't on the line. Monday at pump start the first pod failed during it's self check during priming. I'd rather it did that then after it's stuck to her and inserted. But it's still a little disconcerting. Second pod worked fine. DD loved it. It's the happiest she's been since dx. The third pod worked fine for the first 36 hrs. Late last night at bedtime bg, she's up slightly (still below bedtime correction). By 1am she is 250 (that's high for her-still slightly honeymooning). I give her a correction throught the pod. The cannula looks fine. No alarm from the pod. At 2am she's 275. I had to get her up give her a shot and change the pod. DD crying and worrying about whether she should choose Omnipod. GRRR! I test her later. A perfect 100. But then I start to worry pod correction and shot correction are both IOB and she's going to crash. Spent the whole night checking to see if her 100 was going to last. It did. She's fine now. Unexplained high bgs and DKA are my biggest worry with the pod. I have two questions. Am I being unfair to Omnipod and all pumps/sites have this issue? And to Omnipodders- is this an unusual experience or is this what I have to expect? I want DD to be happy with her choice, but she has to be safe first. It's getting harder and harder to say yes to Omnipod. I am getting more and more confused (not to mention sleep deprived).
