Ok. How can you tell if you have occlusions? What are the signs/symptoms?

Are you going to be using the FreeStyle test strips with the omnipod to test your bg?

Orwell, OH
the omnipod will tell u....it will start beeping non stop till u uninstall it from ur body...the meter will tell u if it was an occlusion or what the problem was...its a very smart machine...

Thank you,****for your help. ****I'm not sure what strips to use. Wouldn't you use the same strips you test your sugars without a pump?

Orwell, OH
the omnipod has a Freestyle meter built into the bottom of the omnipod pdm meter...u use that style with the omnipod, unless u want to manually enter in ur bg from another meter...
