Hanna has used the Omnipod for almost a year. When it works, it's awesome, when pods fail its so much worse and more frustrating then other pumps. I'm glad we got it thru cut the cord and not as the only pump her insurance would pay for, for four years. That being said, when she had to spend 3 days on her Medtronic last week, she was pretty miserable and couldn't wait to get back to her pods. I find the pdm very straight forward and easier to program then the Medtronic. I hate the pods 199 unit cartridge, vs medtronics 300.
