Wondering about the OmniPod? Info Session on June 3rd

Have you seen that small egg-shaped “pod” that works similar to the pump?  OmniPod is holding a session right here in Cincinnati.  It’s this Wednesday, June 3, 2009 at the Tri-Health Fitness and Health Pavilion in Blue Ash.   The OmniPod looks like an interesting alternative to the pump, minus the tubing.  And, for some folks, that’s a huge plus.  I’ve been curious about it since seeing it in the vendor area at a diabetes event a few months back.  

The OmniPod uses the monitor to set and release the insulin (as I understand it), rather than having a separate insulin pump.  So, the OmniPod attaches directly to your body and then you just carry the meter to inject whatever amount of insulin you need and make adjustments to settings.  Just a different take on insulin delivery — something worth exploring further. 

I’m going to try to make this session this week at the Tri-Health Pavilion, at 6200 Pfeiffer Road, Cincinnati, OH (just off  I-71 at the Pfeiffer Rd exit).  It runs from 6pm to 8pm.  You just need to RSVP to Cherie Jorgensen at 614-595-0990.  Or, you can learn more online about it at www.myomnipod.com.  I hope to see you there.  Plus, I’m interested in any feedback others who already use it, or who attend this session have on the OmniPod concept.
