Omnipod PDM basal and Bolus

(Chelsea) #1

Hi! I am looking into getting a Omnipod PDM.
Would it give me my Bolus and basal?

Yes Chelsea @Chels79 the Insulet OmniPod delivers both basal and bolus - you will fill it with rapid-acting insulin such as Humalog or Novolog.
The pump is controlled through a hand-held communicator through which you program such things as basal rates, carb/insulin ratios and sensitivity factors and through which you enter carb counts for meals or correction bolus.

In about another year, it is expected that a newer version of OmniPod will be completed and approved for use that will pare with continuous glucose monitoring forming a “closed loop” system.

A warm Welcome to TypeOneNation!
