Type 1 - my OmniPod just reset itself, lost all my numbers. It's Friday and doctor's office is closed. Any suggestions would be great!

Unfortunately; you should know your own numbers; but since you don't; you have to work with what you do know. You must know what your bolus ratio; my wife's is 1unit/ 10 carbs. For your basil rate, which varies by person and time of day, you'll have to pick a number for awake hours and lower for sleep. If you need help entering data, omnipod can help, just not with how much. Try to stay calm; you won't get it perfect. Take small steps. Small boluses as needed, suspend when headed to low. Avoid high carb meals; snack your way thru this. I hope this helps
