Where's the weirdest location you put you pump on?

Wore my Autosyringe AS*6 in a leg pouch, to big for anything else. Got tired of being accused of caring Walkman everywhere

Kejo, are you asking where we carry our pump or where we put the infusion site? I usually carry my Medtronic Minimed pump in my pocket but when I wear a slinky outfit without pockets, it usually goes in my bra. I understand that their are holsters where you could clip in to your thigh but haven't explored that. As for infusion sites, I rotate from front , back and sides of thighs, hips, abdomen and have used a bit above my waist too…what limits me is being able to access it. I did try infusing on my arm but find it awkward. Happy New Year!

I've only had the omnipod! And you program how many units per 10, 15, etc carbohydrates into the pump… Base on what your Endo wants! And when you test your blood… It also has a correction factor to to take care of your highs!

I usually just put it on my hips or on my upper thighs

Does the pod integrate with a sensor yet: they were in negotiation with dexcom (as was everyone else) but fell apart and seems they are with a new or foreign sensor (eventually)
