My daughter is currently on the omnipod. It is great because it does your calculations for you. There are a lot of adjustments that will need to be made during the beginning but overall she likes it

I just started the Omnipod pump February 10th. It was amazing the first few weeks but just as with syringes, you have to tell it how many carbs you're eating and be dedicated to watching everything tou

You eat. It is not a miracle life changer or anything. At least it was not for me. It is nice not having to take shots six times a day tho
