Hi everyone I have been on the Omni pod pump for over a year now and my numbers have gonne way down from where we started. To my total dismay I am about to lose my insurance which is going to prevent me from buying the disposable pods. I decided to sell my durable device that is in brand new
condition and very expensive. Does anyone knows where can I list it?????

Hi Sadie, well my numbers were crazy, so much so that one doctor held me back at the hospital (against my wishes lol ) once, numbers running at 400 and up I was very inconsistent with the shots. I finally got good health insurance and was able to get the pump, in co pay alone it was almost 2k,my numbers are at a normal person levels now 80/90 in the morning 130/140 after lunch that gets back to the 90 average after a couple hours. It's a very small device, no tubes or lines completely wireless, the durable device sends signals to the small pod that you attach t your skin and continually gives a small amount of insulin 24/7 (how much is determined by your doctor) and you take an extra shot to cover the calories/carbs of your meal. You only place the pod once, so one single shot, ant they last 3 days until you have to change pods and site.
very easy even a child can do it. So in the end my average insulin take is about 50cc a day. please feel free to ask of any specific question that you want to know
