I have a friend that has been a pumper since 1995. She has had a lot of absorption and allergy issues. She switched from 3 days with her sites to 2 days. That worked for awhile and she had to start doing every 24 hours. Recently that started to fail also. She then started using her pump for basal only and doing meals and corrections with a syringe. She asked if I know of anyone else doing that. After she started having these problems, she tried Sure Ts but had an allergic reaction to those. She had really good absorption from them for about 12 hours then they fizzled out. She went back to the Silhouettes and is changing those at 12 hours.
Has this happened to anyone else or has anyone else used the pump for basal only and did meal and correction injections via syringes?
Thanks Lathump. I am not sure what insulin she is using or if she has tried changing.
I knew Kerri was having allergy problems with the Dex but didn't see the one you linked with using a steroid inhaler. That sounds like an interesting cocept! I appreciate your sharing the link!
