Yes I use the long tubing...
silhouetts are inserted on an angle almost parallel with the skin, the longer length is needed because it helps keep them from coming out. This is perfect for lean people. because when the cannula touches muscle it can get blocked and or bent
Also they have a little window to show you if it is still in properly.
I insert them manually. I find it much better than that spring loaded thing.
I've tred a couple of sample sillouettes with the torture instrument thing. I can see why most prefer to insert manually! They are very comfortable and seem to have worked. I think I'll ask if I can have some of these when I next do an order.
I've requested some samples from Medtronic. I hope one of them solves the problem as my sugars are so much better using the pump. Hope the samples don't go missing in the post like my test strips did!
i like insets...and something called contact detach by animas. i like cleos well LOVE them.
I can't use my thighs, I just do not get good results pumping, and using my thighs for my infusion sets, even with pinching. I just dont have much fats on my thighs at all. But I rotate around a LOT on my tummy and so far so good, a little more to work with there.
