I started on the Ping a little over a month ago and seemed to be having a lot of trouble with infusion sets. I use the 9mm straight set and tried the angled set, but I only had two samples and they didn't seem any better (more exploring down the road).
I automatically started out using only my stomach, and rotating sites, because I know stomach has the best absorption. I used it also for MDIs, but only was on shots two years so really wasn't worrying about scarring. But the set in my stomach annoyed me from the start. I always felt aware of the site, like it was in the way of my clothing and insecure when I bent over and wondered how people who do serious exercise managed not to dislodge. My cat thinks her cat bed is my stomach and walked over the set with typical feline unconcern.
So I decided this week to try my thigh. I'm not overweight but have always had heavy thighs, so I knew there was ample fat for the set. What a difference! I don't know how much of this is psychological but I felt the site was so much less bothersome I would forget it was even there! The stomach site always made me feel like I was in the ICU (you know what I mean). I'm down to my last 30 units with no problems or need to change the set. My numbers have been very stable.
Anyone else find dramatically better results with one site over another, in terms of comfort, blood sugar and most important lack of problems with the site?
