How Omnipod® 5 may deliver on psychosocial outcomes

Maintaining the consistent effort and attention required for successful glycaemic management can take a substantial toll on psychosocial wellbeing among people with diabetes and caregivers.1

Tubeless, waterproof* and discreet, the Omnipod® 5 Automated Insulin Delivery System with SmartAdjustTM technology consists of an on-body Pod communicating directly with a compatible sensor, and puts an end to daily injections. Omnipod® 5 has demonstrated improved patient-reported outcomes as well as glycaemic control.2-4

* The Pod has an IP28 rating for up to 7.6 m (25 feet) for 60 minutes. The Omnipod® 5 controller is not waterproof. The Dexcom G6 sensor and transmitter are water-resistant and may be submerged under 2.4 m (8 feet) of water for up to 24 hours without failure when properly installed.
† 1 Pod replaces up to 14 injections over 3 days (14 is the average number of injections over 3 days).

Successful management of T1D looks beyond glycaemic control1

When managing T1D, we must also consider the burden of diabetes on patients and caregivers. Multiple factors can contribute to diabetes distress among patients and their families, including fear of hypoglycaemia, concerns around eating and the relentless toll of day-to-day management.1,2 Consideration of these factors when implementing a new therapy is important.2,5
