  • 2.3 Managing Hypoglycemia Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > To manage hypoglycemia: •Keep a glucagon injection kit (for treating low blood glucose) with your emergency supplies. Teach family members, roommates, and others how to use glucagon properly ahead of time.
  • 2.3 Managing Hypoglycemia Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > To manage hypoglycemia: •If you have an incident of hypoglycemia, find out why. That can help you manage hypoglycemia in the future.
  • 2.4 Managing Hyperglycemia Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes >
  • 2.4 Managing Hyperglycemia Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > When there is not enough insulin in your body, or insulin delivery is interrupted, your blood glucose can rise rapidly. This may lead to another potential condition, high blood glucose, called hyperglycemia.
  • 2.4 Managing Hyperglycemia Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > To prevent hyperglycemia, check your blood glucose four to six times a day. It is a good idea to check your blood glucose when you wake up, before each meal, and before you go to bed.

  • 2.4 Managing Hyperglycemia Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > If you get a blood glucose reading higher than 250 mg/dL and feel symptoms, such as fatigue, thirst, excessive urination, or blurry vision, treat for hyperglycemia as recommended by your healthcare provider.
  • 2.4 Managing Hyperglycemia Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > You should also check for the presence of ketones. Ketones are acidic substances produced when the body breaks down fat for energy. They may be a sign you are experiencing diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a potentially life-threatening condition.
  • 2.4 Managing Hyperglycemia Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > To check for ketones, you do a simple urine test with a urine ketone test strip. If the ketone test is negative or shows trace, continue treating for high blood glucose. If the ketone test shows ketones are present, and you are feeling nauseated or ill, call your healthcare provider immediately for guidance.
  • 2.4 Managing Hyperglycemia Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > When you get a high blood glucose reading but have no symptoms of hyperglycemia, check your blood glucose again with a new test strip. If you still get a high blood glucose reading, treat for hyperglycemia as recommended by your healthcare provider.
  • 2.5 Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes >
  • 2.5 Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > Your body needs insulin to move glucose out of your blood and into your cells to fuel cell activity. When there is not enough insulin in your body, glucose stays in your blood. Your blood glucose level rises.
  • 2.5 Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > But your body still needs energy. If your cells are not getting enough glucose from your blood, your body starts breaking down fat cells for energy. When the body breaks down fats for energy, it produces acidic substances called ‘ketones.’ Ketones in your body can be a sign of the condition called diabetic ketoacidosis, or DKA.
  • 2.5 Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > Symptoms of DKA similar to those of hyperglycemia •Fatigue •Frequent urination, especially during the night •Unusual thirst or hunger •Unexplained weight loss •Blurred vision •Slow healing of cuts or sores

  • 2.5 Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > The easiest and most reliable way to prevent DKA is to check your blood glucose four to six times a day. These routine checks allow you to detect and treat high blood glucose before DKA develops.
  • 2.5 Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > If you get a blood glucose reading higher than 250 mg/dL, also do a check for ketones
  • 2.5 Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > To check for ketones, you do a simple urine test with a urine ketone test strip. If the ketone test is negative or shows trace, continue treating for high blood glucose. If the ketone test shows ketones are present, and you are feeling nauseated or ill, call your healthcare provider immediately for guidance.
  • 2.5 Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > If you need emergency attention, ask a friend or family member to take you to the emergency room or call an ambulance. Do not drive yourself.
  • 2.6 Sick Day Management Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes >
  • 2.6 Sick Day Management Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > Any physical stress can cause your blood glucose to rise, and illness is a physical stress. Even a common illness like getting the flu can affect your blood glucose levels.
  • 2.6 Sick Day Management Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > If you have flu-like symptoms, remember many symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) are similar to flu symptoms. If you have these symptoms, do not assume you have the flu. Check your blood glucose to rule out DKA.
  • 2.6 Sick Day Management Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > Things to do when you are ill •Treat the underlying illness to promote faster recovery. •Check your blood glucose more often, at least once every 2 hours. Keep careful records of results. •Test for ketones when your blood glucose is 250 mg/dL or higher.
  • 2.6 Sick Day Management Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > Things to do when you are ill •Eat as normally as you can. •Drink plenty of non-caffeinated fluids to prevent dehydration. •If you are not eating normally, adjust your bolus doses as needed to match changes in meals and snacks.
  • 2.6 Sick Day Management Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > Living Well with Diabetes > Things to do when you are ill •Always continue your basal insulin, even if you are unable to eat. Contact your healthcare provider for suggested basal rate adjustments when you are ill. •Follow your healthcare provider’s guidelines for taking additional insulin when you are ill.

  • 3.0 The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy Overview Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy >
  • 3.0 The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy Overview Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > Insulin pump therapy has advanced diabetes management and benefited many people with diabetes. But managing diabetes with an insulin pump is much different from managing it with multiple daily injections, or MDI.
  • 3.0 The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy Overview Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > To manage your diabetes successfully with insulin pump therapy, you need to understand those differences. This section will help you understand basics of insulin pump therapy and some of the ways it is different from MDI.
  • 3.0 The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy Overview Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > In this section you will learn about: •Basal rates and bolus doses •Different kinds of insulin •Carbohydrate counting •Factors considered in calculation of a bolus dose
  • 3.1 Basal Rates and Bolus Doses Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy >
  • 3.1 Basal Rates and Bolus Doses Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > Our bodies need a small, constant supply of insulin for normal cell activity. For people without diabetes, the pancreas continuously delivers insulin and varies the amount it delivers throughout the day based on several factors.
  • 3.1 Basal Rates and Bolus Doses Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > Insulin delivery depends on several factors: •Current blood glucose level •Physical activity level •Type and amount of food
  • 3.1 Basal Rates and Bolus Doses Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > In a person without diabetes, the pancreas varies the amount of insulin it produces based on these factors, so it automatically keeps the blood glucose level within a normal range.
  • 3.1 Basal Rates and Bolus Doses Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > The pancreas of people with diabetes has limited or no ability to produce insulin. •Management of diabetes is based on delivering insulin directly to the body. •Multiple daily injections of insulin or an insulin pump can be used to deliver insulin.
  • 3.1 Basal Rates and Bolus Doses Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > When using an insulin pump, one part of the treatment consists of a small amount of insulin delivered continuously for a period of time, similar to what the pancreas does. This amount is called a basal rate. It is measured in units per hour.
  • 3.1 Basal Rates and Bolus Doses Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > If your basal rate of insulin is not enough to keep your blood glucose at an acceptable level, your treatment will include a bolus or extra dose of insulin.
  • 3.1 Basal Rates and Bolus Doses Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > An extra dose of insulin: •Meal bolus An extra dose of insulin when you are about to eat a meal or snack that is likely to raise your blood glucose level •Correction bolus An extra dose of insulin to reduce your blood glucose when it is above your target level
  • 3.2 Insulin for Pump Therapy Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy >
  • 3.2 Insulin for Pump Therapy Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > To understand how insulin pump therapy works, you need to know a little more about the different kinds of insulin and different ways to take insulin. Insulin Pump Therapy
  • 3.2 Insulin for Pump Therapy Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > Two types of insulin
  • 3.2 Insulin for Pump Therapy Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > Two types of insulin •Long-acting insulin stays in your body longer, so you take it less often. •Rapid-acting insulin stays a shorter time, so you take it more often.
  • 3.2 Insulin for Pump Therapy Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > Perhaps you have used multiple daily injections (MDI) in the past to get your insulin. Pump therapy works differently from MDI.
  • 3.2 Insulin for Pump Therapy Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > Perhaps you have used multiple daily injections (MDI) in the past to get your insulin. Pump therapy works differently from MDI. •The pump uses only rapid-acting insulin and releases it continuously into your body.
  • 3.2 Insulin for Pump Therapy Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > Perhaps you have used multiple daily injections (MDI) in the past to get your insulin. Pump therapy works differently from MDI. •The pump uses only rapid-acting insulin and releases it continuously into your body. •You have more control of the amount and the rate at which insulin is released.
  • 3.2 Insulin for Pump Therapy Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > If you need additional insulin to correct your blood glucose level or match your carbohydrate intake, you can get that insulin with the push of a few buttons.
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy >
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > At times you may need an extra dose of insulin because you are about to eat a meal or snack that is likely to raise your blood glucose. This extra dose is called a meal bolus.
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > You probably eat many different kinds of food: fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and meats or proteins. Some foods may raise your blood glucose. This is because they contain carbohydrates.
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > When the body digests food, it turns carbohydrates into glucose very quickly. So, foods high in carbohydrates have the greatest effect on blood glucose. For example, starches and some vegetables; fruit and fruit juice; milk and milk products; and sweets and desserts may affect your blood glucose.
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > Eating a meal high in carbohydrates may raise your blood glucose level quickly. That affects how much insulin you will need to keep your blood glucose at the acceptable level.
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > So it is important to track the amount of carbohydrates you are eating. Because carbohydrates are typically measured in grams, you will need to know how many grams of carbo- hydrates are in a meal or snack. You can do it by counting carbs.
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > How would you count carbs? One way is to read the Nutrition Facts labels on packaged foods. These labels tell you how many grams of carbohydrates are in a single serving of the food.
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > First, look for the serving size information at the top of the label. In this example, a serving is two crackers. But remember a package may hold more than one serving. This package contains 21 servings!
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > Next, find the section called Total Carbohydrate. It tells you how many grams of carbohydrates are in one serving.
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > To find out how many total grams you are eating, multiply the number of grams in one serving by the number of servings that you are eating.
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > Each serving of two of these crackers contains 10 grams of carbohydrates. If you eat four crackers, you have eaten 20 grams of carbohydrates.
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > When you eat foods without labels, there are other ways to count carbs. You can ask your dietitian for a list of foods that shows you their carb counts, for example.
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > And your OmniPod System has a reference library of carb counts for many foods.
  • 3.3 Carbohydrate Counting Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > Before you begin using the OmniPod System, it is recommended that you meet with a registered dietitian to review your meal planning and carbohydrate counting skills.
  • 3.4 Insulin on Board (IOB) Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy >
  • 3.4 Insulin on Board (IOB) Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > One important factor that affects your bolus dose is your Insulin on Board (IOB). IOB is the amount of insulin still working in your body from any previous meal or correction boluses.
  • 3.4 Insulin on Board (IOB) Getting Ready for OmniPod System Training > The Basics of Insulin Pump Therapy > IOB depends on three factors: •Duration of insulin action •Time since previous bolus •The amount of previous bolus
