I am really at my wits end - my 8 year old has been using the Omnipod for 3 years with virtually no problems. Over the last few weeks we have had so many pod failures that I have lost count. A few days ago we got our quarterly shipment of new pods, so I stopped using the ones I had left from the last shipment thinking that maybe they were just a bad batch of pods. Well, the new shipment of pods are not much better. Yesterday was the first day of school - Tyson ate lunch and on his way to the nurse's office to be bolused - his pod started screaming. Okay, go to school, slap on a new pod. He gets home and is just sitting on the couch and that pod starts screaming. Slap on Pod #3 for the day. About 3 minutes later, it starts screaming. Okay, are you friggin' kidding me?? Now we are on to Pod #4 - it primes all fine and dandy and while walking from kitchen to living room with pod in hand - it starts screaming. This cannot be happening. On to POD #5 for the day!! This one finally works! Day 2 of 3rd grade - another call from the nurse - she checked Tyson's blood sugar before lunch at Noon. After lunch he brings his tray to the nurse so she can figure out how many carbs he has eaten and boluses him - he is standing there with his tray- nobody is doing anything and his POD STARTS SCREAMING. I am literally ready to pull my hair out and put my kid back on shots - which I really, really do not want to do. I called Omnipod but they need me to call back when I have the PDM so I can give them the alarm history. I'm wondering if maybe we should buy a new PDM? Ours is the newer one but I think it may be like 2 years old now. Has this happened to anyone else? Help.
