Another Little Victory

It’s an OmniPod…. on my arm!

This may not seem like a big deal, but shortly after starting on OmniPod, I tried an arm site. It didn’t really hurt and I thought all was well until I checked my blood sugar and it was nearly 200, a significant jump from my after dinner spike. So I took a correction. I can safely say that it was the most painful OmniPod experience I’d ever had. The bolus hurt like crazy and I decided that the site needed to come out.

I hadn’t tried since, then last night after having gotten some encouragement from other OmniPodders, I gave it another shot ( < unintentional pun).

Have a good weekend!

  1. Yay!!! I have to admit, I don’t use my arms for pump sites or for my CGM. Why? Simply because I am chicken!!

    • I understand that! I’m not sure I’d use my arm site if I had a tubed pump, I’m almost certain I’d rip it out… that’s actually one reason I went with the tubeless.
