From Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada:

As the parent of a seven-year-old boy with type 1 diabetes, diagnosed at age 2, I would like to know what the best DIA (duration of insulin action) setting for his Omnipod pump should be. We been advised a wide range, from 3 to 6 hours. It's a big range for an important setting (especially for a child). What setting do you recommend? What does the evidence show?


We usually recommend four hours.
