Ask Me Anything > CGM vs omnipod

Can you tell me if Arden has more pain with inserting the dexcom sensor over the omnipod? From what I read the sensor is 13 mm compared to omnipod cannula being 6mm.

I spoke to Arden and asked her your question Russ...

I asked her, "What hurts more when you insert it, DexCom or OmniPod?"

She thought and said that she doesn't think of them as hurting. She said it only feels bad for a second and then it's gone. She spoke specifically about OmniPod saying, "I stopped thinking it hurt after the third time".

I want to add that she still gets anxious before we insert but two seconds later, she is fine and back on her way.

Hope this helps!
