1. 6 units
2. Novolog
3. 3 or 4 days
4. Inset 9mm/23"

Comment by Ramon on January 26, 2012 at 5:54pm

1. I try to keep it under 18 units in 1 dose.
2. Novalog
3. 2 1/2 days max. The site starts to hurt after about 48 hours.
4. The 23 in. Inset.

Comment by Zoe on January 26, 2012 at 5:41pm

1. 6 units
2 Apidra
3. 3 days, 4 if I all is well; but I lose sets right away or after a day at times. In response to the OP, when it continues to hurt like that I usually know the set isn't good and wait through one meal to see.
4.I use the inset 30's 43"

Hi Florian,
I'm new here, and from Canada, so take my information with a pinch of salt and any necessary conversion factors:
1. about 14, for a mighty big pizza & garlic bread night
2. Novorapid
3. 3 days minimum,4 days if I can eke out the insulin, but no more
4. Inset II, 6mm 0.30u cannula

2. Novolog
3. 3 days some times less if they have any problems we change it
4. They both use Inset 23in. one green and one pink

Comment by Annabella on January 26, 2012 at 4:40pm

Hi Florian

To answer your questions:

1. I think 5 units, but I use very insulin, TDD of about 20 units.

2 Novolog

3. 4 days sometimes less if I'm having problems

4. Inset, Comfort Short or Inset30 depending where in my body I am going to stick it.

Comment by Florian Menninger Jr on January 26, 2012 at 3:27pm

Hi Animas Pumpers, I use the Animas PING filled with Novolog, INSETS, and the remote for my blood sugar control. I haven't had any problems with what I've been doing but I have a few question for the Animas pumpers that I hope you will answer.
1. What is the largest Normal Bolus that you have given yourself?
2. What insulin do you use?
3. How many days do you use an Infusion Set?
4. What kind of infusion set do you use?
Thanks everyone

Comment by Larissa on January 24, 2012 at 8:04pm
So I have a question for pump users! When you change your pump site with the inset 30 is it possible to hit something on the inside of your body like muscle or something? I think that's what I did it hurts really bad like you won't apply pressure when you touch n it will still hurts really bad. Anybody want to help me out?
