Hi fellow diabetics,
I am 33yrs old, and was diagnosed with LADA a year ago. I am looking at getting a pump so I can continue to live my life somewhat normally. I have had some serious issues with hypoglycemia while exercising, and as I understand it, the pump will help keep things more in-check and allow a little more freedom for spontaneous workouts. So here's the thing, I am trying to decide between an Omnipod or one of the more traditional pumps. I like to snowboard, raft, mountain bike etc. so I need a durable waterproof pump that will work in adverse weather conditions. My concern with the Omnipod is location placement; protection from falls on the bike, and hard hits during snowboarding, whether or not the GM will work in adverse weather temperatures. Advise, tips, concerns etc. from any one with this device that partakes in these activities would be greatly appreciated. As goes with anyone with the more traditional style pump...placement, how to protect it during said activities, problems with temperature etc. Also, I haven't found a GM that doesn't error out when it gets too hot or too cold; like I said, I love to snowboard, play in the desert, and water (dry box doesn't work due to the humidity and heat)---any ideas??
