Diagnosed with hemophilia or any other bleeding disorders 6. Plans to receive blood transfusion over the course of the study 7. Currently diagnosed with anorexia nervosa or bulimia 8.

Has taken oral or injectable steroids within the past 8-weeks or plans to take oral or injectable steroids during the course of the study 11. Unable to tolerate adhesive tape or has any unresolved skin condition in the area of sensor or pump placement 12. Plans to use insulin other than U-100 insulin intended for use in the study device during the course of the study 13. Use of non-insulin anti-diabetic medication other than metformin (e.g. GLP1 agonist, SGLT2 inhibitor, DPP-4 inhibitor, pramlintide) 14. Current or known history of coronary artery disease that is not stable with medical management, including unstable angina, or angina that prevents moderate exercise despite medical management, or a history of myocardial infarction, percutaneous coronary intervention, or coronary artery bypass grafting within the previous 12-months. 15. For subjects >50 years old or with diabetes duration >20 years, abnormal electrocardiogram consistent with increased risk of arrhythmia, ischemia, or prolonged QTc interval (> 450 ms) 16. Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is outside of normal range with clinical signs of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism 17. Pregnant or lactating, or is a woman of childbearing potential and not on acceptable form of birth control (acceptable includes abstinence, condoms, oral/injectable contraceptives, IUD or implant) 18. Participation in another clinical study using an investigational drug or device other than the Omnipod Horizon™ Automated Glucose Control System within the preceding 30-days or intends to participate during the study period 19.
