where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Hi I'm on omnipod and today I noticed bruising around the pod so I took it off and it's all bruised and dis- colored around the cannula hurts too! Does this happen to anyone else ? Advice ?

I have the omnipod and haven't had that issue. Maybe when it inserted it hit a vessel. I would watch it and try not to use that area again!

I have the animus pump and that happens with my sites. I just move mine and wait for the bruise to go away and stay away from it, my doctor says it's not a problem until everytime you do it it bruises

Can happen, it's gone into a place used before, stay away from there for a while & use somewhere else. Might help

I have the omni pod and I too have had problems. I have allergic reactions to mine, it may be infected but I would check with your nurses as I have had many infections x
