Get Ready to Start

Starting the Omnipod® 5 System for the first time is easy, but it will require initial insulin settings from your healthcare provider (HCP) and training on the system. You should never attempt to calculate these settings on your own.

Initial setup will take you through three main steps:

  1. Entry of personalized information and insulin pump settings
  2. Connecting a Sensor
  3. Pod setup and activation

Once these steps are complete and the Omnipod 5 is connected to a compatible Sensor, you'll be ready to switch to Automated Mode. Your HCP also has a unique code which you'll need in order to share your data with their practice.

To learn about the Omnipod 5 system in Automated Mode, watch “Omnipod 5 Automated Insulin Delivery System Training”:

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 to complete setup and schedule your required training.
