Pod Therapy for insulin-requiring Type 2 diabetes

There are several treatment options available for Type 2 diabetes. If insulin therapy is needed, Omnipod DASH® Insulin Management System allows people with Type 2 diabetes to manage their blood sugar without multiple daily injections. 

Consider Pod Therapy—and say goodbye to daily injections and tubes.

If you need insulin to manage your Type 2 diabetes, you might discover a whole new level of freedom with the Omnipod DASH® Insulin Delivery System. Instead of dealing with the interruptions and inconvenience of multiple daily injections, you could manage your diabetes with tubeless insulin delivery in the form of a Pod that you can wear under your clothing for up to 72 hours of continuous insulin.

How does an insulin pump help?

An insulin pump (like Omnipod) is a small medical device that delivers a continuous amount of fast-acting insulin 24 hours a day to match your background insulin, and allows you to deliver mealtime insulin at the touch of a button. It is an alternative to injected insulin therapy, which means that on pump therapy you will need fewer injections. 

Omnipod is covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare Part D.

Unlike traditional tubed pumps, Omnipod may be covered by your private pharmacy plan or Medicare Part D and is the only pump eligible by Medicare for people with insulin requiring Type 2 diabetes. And with Omnipod, there are no commitments or long-term contracts. The Personal Diabetes Manager is included for free with your first box of Pods.
