I have been using the Minimed pump for almost four years now, but in the past couple months, I have been having a lot of trouble with the infusion sets.
I'm allergic to the sof-set tape, and don't really like the angle of the silhouette, which leaves only the QuickSet. Every time I try to insert with the inserter thingy, the cannula ends up bent, or not fully inserted. Sometimes I can't tell that it wasn't inserted correctly for up to a whole day, when my blood sugars finally go crazy.
I'm also rather thin, and am quickly running out of infusion sites. After avoiding recently used areas and surgery scars, there's not much left!
So basically, I've given up and gone back to Lantus and Novolog. But, I miss the control I had with the pump (back when it worked).
Anybody else have these problems? Any suggestions???
