So I was reading in a small Swedish diabetes forum where someone has issues with the infusion set leaking at the site and if she doesn't change set and site her numbers will creep up. The infusion set can be fairly new when it starts leaking. This person said it mainly happens when she's been active. She's using 8mm Accu-Chek Rapid D. Sometimes there is some blood in the tubing too.
Anyone here who has had similar problems or any trick to avoid this? It's really a big waste of infusion sets and a lot of unnecessary pokes when the sets fail long before the 3 day mark.
This person has been pumping for a few years.
It happens and you have to change it. Search the pumpers forum for more discussions, here's one
when you find a good discussion, you can use Google translate on it for the person if they don't speak English.
There are many ways to avoid this but it would all depend on different variables.
