Hello everyone. I am now officialy a pumper. Had my pump start this morning and everything went well. I am so glad I no longer have to take up to 10 shots per day.

I didn't feel any pain and I would not have even notice but when I took the tube out to put it on the cartridge and prime I noticed the blood on my pump and the counter and then realized it was all over the end of the tubing. I was a little shaken up and took it out. The tissue thing sounds like a great idea.

Re: bleeding, it is important to quickly spot blood leaking into your infused insulin. Need to replace that sucker ASAP.
Comment by Meda-Kay on March 15, 2014 at 5:17pm

Nichole, Zoe is right. The first time is the worst. For me, it really scared me and I didn't think it would ever stop bleeding. Now I just make sure I have tissues right by me when I change my set.

Comment by Zoe on March 15, 2014 at 4:11pm

Happens, sometimes, Nichole, it's called a "gusher". The first time it happens is the worst but it's always a little startling. I grab tissues which are closer and then head for the paper towels.

I changed my site and got blood everywhere. :(

I apologize if you've covered this but ....

Has anyone uploaded the "COMMENTS" from the METER to Diasend successfully? If so, would you mind giving me a hint or two? I am a Windows 8 & 7 user.

Thanks in advance,

Matt, I find that the leaks happen when the inset is not inserted at the proper angle.

Comment by Grant A on November 7, 2013 at 2:50pm

Matt I have been using the one touch ping for 6 months now and I have never had one leak.
