What is Omnipod 5?




Omnipod 5 is a tubeless, wearable, automated insulin delivery system that consists of three parts:


  • The Pod, which is a disposable insulin pump that adheres to your skin and delivers insulin via an automatically inserted cannula. It can hold up to 200 units of insulin and can be worn for up to three days before needing replacement.



  • The Dexcom G6 CGM, which is a continuous glucose monitoring system that measures your blood glucose levels every five minutes and sends the data wirelessly to the Pod and the app. It does not require fingerstick calibrations or injections and can be worn for up to 10 days before needing replacement.



  • The Omnipod 5 App, which is an Android app that allows you to select a basal profile, target glucose and bolus settings, activate and deactivate the Pod, connect with the Dexcom G6 CGM, and select an insulin delivery mode. You can also view your glucose trends, insulin history, food database, and reports on the app.



Features and benefits of Omnipod 5




Omnipod 5 offers several features and benefits for diabetes management, such as:


  • Improved glycemic control. Clinical studies have shown that Omnipod 5 users have improved time in range, lower A1C, lower rates of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, and lowered blood sugar levels.



  • Ease of use. Omnipod 5 is simple to set up and use, with no multiple daily injections, tubes, or fingersticks required. You can control everything from your smartphone app or from a separate controller device provided by Insulet.



  • Greater flexibility. Omnipod 5 is tubeless and waterproof, meaning you can wear it discreetly under clothing and do not have to worry about disconnecting or reconnecting it when showering or swimming. You can also choose where to place the Pod on your body for optimal comfort.



  • Adapted to you. Omnipod 5 adapts with every Pod change to meet your unique insulin needs and adjusts insulin using a customized target glucose, not a range. It also has an activity feature that allows you to adjust your insulin delivery based on your exercise level.



  • SmartAdjust technology. Omnipod 5 uses SmartAdjust technology that uses your CGM value and trend to automatically increase, decrease, or pause insulin delivery every five minutes. This helps keep you in range day and night without manual intervention.

How to use Omnipod 5 APK




After you have installed the Omnipod 5 app, you can use it to control your Omnipod 5 system. Here are some of the main functions that you can perform with the app:


Setting up the system




To set up your Omnipod 5 system, you need to pair your Pod with your app and connect your Dexcom G6 CGM with your app. You also need to enter your basal profile, target glucose, and bolus settings. You can follow these steps to set up your system:


  • Fill a new Pod with insulin using a syringe and needle provided by Insulet.



  • Remove the adhesive backing from the Pod and place it on a clean, dry, and hairless area of your body, such as your abdomen, lower back, or upper arm.



  • Open the Omnipod 5 app and tap on "Activate Pod". Follow the instructions on the screen to pair your Pod with your app using Bluetooth.



  • Wait for the Pod to beep twice and then press "Start" on the app to insert the cannula into your skin.



  • Wait for another beep from the Pod and then press "Done" on the app to complete the activation process.



  • Open the Dexcom G6 app and follow the instructions on the screen to pair your CGM transmitter with your app using Bluetooth.



  • Insert a new CGM sensor into your skin using the applicator provided by Dexcom.



  • Snap the transmitter onto the sensor and wait for it to connect with your app.



  • Wait for two hours for the CGM sensor to warm up and then enter a calibration code or perform a fingerstick calibration if needed.



  • Open the Omnipod 5 app and tap on "Settings". Enter your basal profile, target glucose, and bolus settings as prescribed by your doctor.



Controlling the system




To control your Omnipod 5 system, you can use the app to select an insulin delivery mode, deliver a bolus, suspend or resume insulin delivery, deactivate or replace a Pod, or adjust your settings. Here are some of the options that you can choose from:



Insulin delivery modeDescription


Auto ModeThis is the default mode that automatically adjusts insulin delivery based on your CGM data and settings. It aims to keep you within your target glucose range at all times.


This is the mode that allows you to manually set your basal rate and deliver boluses as needed. You can use this mode when you want more control over your insulin delivery or when your CGM data is not available.


Temp BasalThis is the option that allows you to temporarily increase or decrease your basal rate for a certain period of time. You can use this option when you expect your blood glucose to rise or fall due to factors such as exercise, stress, illness, or food.


Extended BolusThis is the option that allows you to deliver a bolus over a longer period of time. You can use this option when you eat foods that have a high fat or protein content and cause a delayed rise in blood glucose.


To deliver a bolus, you can use the app to enter the amount of carbohydrates or glucose that you are eating or drinking, or enter the desired insulin dose. The app will calculate the recommended bolus amount based on your settings and current blood glucose level. You can then confirm or adjust the bolus amount and press "Deliver" to start the bolus delivery.


To suspend or resume insulin delivery, you can use the app to press "Suspend" or "Resume" at any time. This will pause or restart your basal and bolus insulin delivery. You can use this option when you need to stop insulin delivery for a short time, such as during a medical procedure, a low blood glucose episode, or a pump site change.
