    Has anyone experienced insulin delivery issues approximately 12 hours prior to Pod requiring changing? I am experiencing reduced/no insulin delivery during this time, which is leading to unexplained high blood sugar readings.

    from time to time i get unexplained highs in the last 24 hours of a dash pod.....i have a rule that i always follow.....if my sugars are above 10 mmol ( 180 mg/dl ) and i have not eaten recently ...then i will give a pump correction and i will wait for 60 to 90 minutes and if still no reduction i do a pen correction and change the pod out early and report it to Insulet

    Sounds like a good plan. Did Insulet respond to your email?
