The freedom to live your life with less interruptions.

First, let’s unpack pump therapy

Put simply, insulin pumps continuously deliver short acting insulin. They do this by inserting a small cannula into your subcutaneous tissue. This cannula constantly infuses precise amounts of basal insulin as well as your bolus insulin when needed. This constant infusion reduces the need for multiple daily insulin injections and may simplify your diabetes management1.

There are two types of insulin pumps: tubed pumps or patch pumps, such as the Omnipod DASH® System.

Patch pumps

A patch pump, such as the Omnipod DASH® System has no tubing and is applied directly onto the skin and will need to be changed every 3 days**2. The cannula is automatically inserted into the subcutaneous tissue at the push of a button on a hand held device.3

Tubed pumps

On tubed pumps, the cannula is connected to the pump with a tube. The insulin is then pumped into your subcutaneous tissue though the cannula. These pumps are usually clipped onto a belt or placed in a pocket.3

What are my next steps?


Always consult your healthcare provider on the suitability of pump or Pod Therapy to manage your diabetes. When discussing with your healthcare provider, it is important that you speak about your unique lifestyle needs.


For example, if you are very active, you might benefit from using a Pod as there is no need to disconnect your Pod when you are taking a shower, or going for a swim, which can result in a disruption in insulin delivery6.


The Omnipod DASH® System may help simplify your diabetes management. The Pod's automated cannula insertion is virtually pain-free, allowing you to deliver precise amounts of insulin 24 hours a day.


The Omnipod DASH® System may also help to simplify your day-to-day life by letting you easily calculate your bolus through the bolus calculator1, reducing the need for mealtime math. The intuitive interface of the Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM)1 was developed in conjunction with real-life Podders™ to make it as simple and intuitive as possible.

How to make the most out of your doctor’s appointment

Speaking to your healthcare provider about pump or Pod Therapy can be a new experience. Here are a few tips that may help get the conversation started.

 

Plan Ahead

Share your interest in pump or Pod Therapy with your healthcare provider and prepare any questions you may have about your treatment options.

Logging

Keep a log sheet with detailed records of your insulin doses and carb intake for a few weeks before your appointment. This can be helpful when talking about your diabetes management and treatment options.

It can also help you to identify and demonstrate any issues you may be experiencing with your current diabetes treatment with your healthcare provider or nurse.

Plan the Agenda

As you review your logbook, you may see some challenges you have experienced when trying to manage your blood glucose levels on a daily basis. (Eg, sports, sleep, or unpredictable schedules)

The next steps is to define the agenda for the meeting. So keep a few questions in mind to ask your healthcare provider or nurse as this will be the perfect opportunity to do so.

In the meantime, you can order your free non-functioning sample Pod* and try wearing it yourself to see how small and discrete it actually is.
