{YouTube Tuesday} Why Q Likes the OmniPod

by Leighann on January 17, 2012

People often ask why we chose the OmniPod over insulin pumps. I always give a diplomatic answer about how all pumps have their pluses and minuses before giving our reasons. But the reality is that there was never a question for us. We wanted a patch pump.

My friend Stacey has been wearing a traditional pump with tubing for a while and she decided to give OmniPod a try. In the spirit of encouragement, Q made a little video for Stacey to tell her some of the reasons why she likes the OmniPod.

Disclosure: OmniPod did not ask me to write about their product and I am not compensated in any way by the company. Though they should because Q is one of their greatest spokespersons.

I decided to go with the Omnipod for many of the same reasons. And I appreciate your tips so far.

Good to know – way to go, Q! And nice to read Stacey’s perceptions as well. Will keep an eye out for more as we move into our first full week with the Pod. 🙂

THANK YOU Q!! I loved this and appreciated your opinion very much!! I hadn’t thought of the going in the water – another bonus 🙂 I’m glad you like it and maybe one day you can be a spokesperson for them 😉

Leighann, your girls is such a little cutie! Our little cutie has been using omnipod for almost a month and we are love, love, loving it!! I have a question for you: what is that great bag Q has all her stuff in in the video? Does it have room for a spare pod and a snack in addition to everything else she showed? Just wondering. Looking for a bag option that is easy to throw in her schoolbag, my purse, etc. Thanks~
