Congrats Bill and welcome to the pumping world! My son who was diagnosed last year starting on the pump in late October and he really likes is better than the multiple shots per day.

Congrats, Bill! Don't hesitate to ask questions; the first few weeks are definitely a learning curve until you get everything tweaked.

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.

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.
