I use the Medtronics pump, but would love to try the Omnipod if it was available here in Canada. I dislike the tube getting caught on my clothes and tangling me up now and then. It is rare, but annoying. I'm not aware of a tubeless pump by Medtronics but being familiar with the company, am confident they are working on one. I have not been overly impressed by the Medtronics CGM as I have trouble keeping it calibrated and wind up tossing the $50 sensor before I should need to. You will need to inquire with Omnipod if they are available in India. I have had a pump for 8 months now after 41 years of daily injections, and am pleased with the results it is giving me.
