Tara and the OmniPod

From TSchmidt 2009-01-25 14:31:03 -0600 11 Comments

Tara shares how the OMNIPOD has made living with Type 1 Diabetes a piece of cake. Tara is 13 and was diagnosed about 2 years ago just as she entered middle school. After 3000+ injections, we discovered the OmniPod Insulin Management System.

While we still need to test her blood sugar levels up to 10 times a day, the OmniPod has eliminated the injections, and has given Tara the independence she needs as she enters her teen years.

We are still praying for "the cure" and hope everyone can find a little bit extra to give to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.


Thanks for watching!

Hey! Congrats on having such a cool kid, who's not letting diabetes run her life! It must be refreshing I'm sure not having to inject insulin every day, several times a day…

I got my latest pump just over a year ago and then shortly afterwards learned about the Omnipod. The Omnipod will be my next pump. :-)
