@thediabeticcactus - Sarah Johnson | While we’re on the topic of trying new things, I have been thinking more recently about possibly switching to omnipod in the future! I love love love love the idea of a tubeless pump just sounds so nice! I got a few demo pods just to see how it felt to wear it so I put one on my arm and one on my leg! I didn’t even notice them! I don’t think I’ll be making any rash decisions and switching anytime soon since I haven’t had tandem for more than a year and I also really want to see what the whole Basil IQ system is about, so... with all of that being said, as of this moment, I am going to keep sticking with Tandem- who I absolutely love and have no complaints about.

@peachy_png I’ve been on the omni for 6 years and it’s great. i would personally recommend it for how easy to use + it’s not bulky or anything and you don’t have to worry about clipping it onto clothes or anything ☺️

@truly.sweet_ I switched from the animas onetouch ping to the omnipod this year... best decision i have ever made. i’m a dancer and i love to move around, so the tubing was really getting in my way. it would fly off my waistband during rehearsals and the tubing would frequently get caught on doorknobs. plus, i would always forget to change my site every three days. omnipod has absolutely changed the game for me. i totally recommend switching, it’s made life so much easier for me

@marcias18 Omnipod is the best!!.. i’m a type 1 for 50 years and an omnipodder for a long time... great control and wonderful customer service..

@_jdrinan I love my omnipod! i work in a hospital and in that type of fast paced setting, i wouldn’t be able to have a pump with tubing. i workout 5 days a week and am constantly on the go, and i can imagine the millions of things that could go wrong for me. sometimes i put it on in a spot that gets tugged wrong by the adhesive, but other than that i couldn’t be happier with the pump!

@carrieleelarsen Love @tandemdiabetes & can’t imagine switching! even if that means tubeless witch is very tempting but i’m loving my tandem after 18+ years of nothing but medtronic & love the fact that they are integrated with @dexcom !!! for those reasons alone after being type1 for 41+ years i’m very happy to be with the 2 companies that i’m currently using!
