Hi everyone! Happy New Year! My name is Grace. I am 16 and was diagnosed with t1d in June of 2016. I am considering getting a pump, but I’m not quite sure which one to get. I really like the OmniPod and how its tubeless. It also has many other features that I like, but I’ve heard that it can cause scar tissue (im sure in the long term many pumps can also cause scar tissue and i know insulin injections can too). I also was able to wear a demo version of the OmniPod (it was just a demo that shows what wearing a real one would feel like) and I did not really like the weight. To me it was a little heavy and annoying. I wore it for about two days and I still never really got use to the feeling.
Those are my concerns about the pod. Does anyone know/ have experience with an OmniPod and how it does in the long-term? Thanks so much
