Well, my bright shiny new Ping pump and meter was delivered last week and my appointment with the Animas trainer is on Wednesday. I'll be pumping and I'm hopeful of leveling out the highs and lows of life. As much preparation as I've had it still seems a bit overwhelming. I'll take it one step at a time looking forward to great results.
The Animas support desk told me that the clear line should not be in the little indentation prior to pulling back and locking the trigger. Only after the trigger is locked, should the line be placed in the slot. My before dinner number was much nearer normal. Whew! Thanks for the support!
I do that, and still get bent ones sometimes *sigh*. I've had enough that I recognize what's going on now, but I too would like to prevent them!
Try as hard as I can, I can't understand what you mean! What clear line? What indentation? What pulling back and locking what trigger? Are you talking about Insets or Inset 30s??
Insets. There's a little indentation on the inserter where you're supposed to tuck in the canula before inserting.
Oh, thanks, now I got it. I used Insets for awhile and then decided I like inset 30s better. It was the "clear line" that threw me; now I realize he meant "tubing"!
I did get off to a great start and was so pleased, then... My control was not so good starting mid-week last week. I contacted my CDE and Animas service desk. Replaced sets over and over again. While things have improved somewhat, I'm still not staying in target and inquired with my endo if I might be a candidate for steel needle insets. She's out of the office but replied by email late last evening and said yes. Have any of you gotten off to a rough start with the 9mm straight insets and then to steel needles?
