We were so excited to learn that the FDA cleared the Omnipod 5 insulin pump for consumer use on January 28, 2022! The Omnipod 5 will integrate the Omnipod insulin delivery system with the Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitor. This system now allows for automatic adjustment of insulin doses based on the glucose level.
Check out this video for a very detailed overview of the new technology: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=768mxjOTMLs
If you have an Omnipod and would like to upgrade (or are interested in getting one), we encourage you to reach out to your endocrinologist to learn more.
