what sort of insulin use do you have ? -- I average about 55u per day for basal / bolus but always fill to 200u just to be on the safe side.

if you are on a low dose I would still recommend putting 100u in the pod -- the vial of insulin holds 1000u and 10 pods X 3 days = the vial of insulin.
so putting in the 85u minimum will still result in insulin in vial past its use by date
( just a tip )

I had several problems when living in West Sussex I was attending Bournemouth hospital and was on the Pump from Bournemouth Accu chek combo suddenly 18months later went to order consumables bad was told no account I then had a battle with the CCG who forced me to change hospitals so god to go local to keep the pump I had months of stress even Input helped but CCG were adamant go local or no consumables.
So pleased I moved to Nottingham well bear Sutton In Ashfield Sherwood  & Newark NHS trust.

That was another reason for Omnipod as have large doses they have altered my Basel today.before I go on it they need 3days of Bolus readings

yes -- they ( DSN ) will want to be cautious in starting you out so want as much of your normal readings and usage as possible.

As you have pumped already you should be making adjustments yourself fairly quickly.

Very glad to hear you are getting better treatment now you have moved.


I was up at the hospital last week for the Libre trials and was told that my clinic now offer a choice of Animas or Medtronic, having ditched the Accu-check Insight, but none of the patch pumps.  So I guess next year it will have to be the Medtronic as I couldn't face not having a handset.
