Hi, after 17 years of saying no to an insulin pump I'm now considering it. My consultant mentioned the omnipod to me the other day & was just wondering what the general opinion was on it? In my teenage years i never liked the thought of a pump attached to me constantly but now I'm older I'm passed caring lol. I've watched a few videos on YouTube & everyone raves about it, please let me know your thoughts & any advice ☺

Never actually seen one as there is only 2 pumps available in my area, one of which has a bigger reservoir, which is what I need, so only really one choice.....

From other people I have heard its good......a smaller reservoir than I need but good....

do you need a pump or are they giving them away......lol...

Thanks for replying 😊

My control's been a bit hit & miss over the past year so the pump was suggested. Although now I'm actually interested in one I probably won't be eligible for the funding lol
