Extended Bolus

When using the Omnipod® 5 System in Manual Mode, you may find that certain meals with high-fat and high-protein content would benefit from a bolus dose delivered over a period of time instead of all at once. Programming an Extended Bolus could help in these instances.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • You can only extend the meal portion of the bolus.
  • The correction portion of the bolus, if any, is always delivered immediately.
  • The Extended Bolus feature is not available when using the system in Automated Mode.

Watch the video for step-by-step instructions to learn how you can program an Extended Bolus while using Omnipod 5 in Manual Mode.

Training is essential and must be completed before using the Omnipod 5 System. As part of this process, you will need to meet with your healthcare provider and visit omnipod.com/setup to complete setup and schedule your required training.
