Hi Laura, welcome to our community! I have used a Minimed pump for almost 4 years. I think there a couple of Omnipod users here, I hope they will reply.
I have been type 1 for 65 years, and am doing quite well. Your pump should enable you to have good control, but it takes a lot of time and patience to get everything going the way you want it. The book "Pumping Insulin" by John Walsh helped ma a lot. I bought my copy from amazon.com.
welcome Laura sorry I'm not on a pump so can't offer advice there. I'm type 2 and I'm injecting insulin throughout the day myself. As Richard has said already, hopefully you'll get good BGL control from your new pump. Look forward to hearing your experiences.
