So, I have been pumping for about a year now, and generally speaking things are going pretty well, using a minimed 722. I have been having very strange high numbers lately, and will occassionally find small bubbles or maybe one large bubble in the tubing. What is strange is that I am very methodical in my procedures for new reservoirs and sites, following many of the guidelines found on TuD., and the bubbles, if I catch them do not seem related to a new or old site. I do not recall having bubbles or air in the tubing to any degree like this before...
The pump is a reconditioned pump from minimed, exchanged after I had a problem the buttons failing, but that was a tleast 4-6 months ago. One thing I have noticed with the pump is that when it is priming (if removing an air bubble or the initial prime), there seems to be an uneven rhythm to the pumping - something like slow progress slow progress, then fast fast then dlow slow slow fast fast slow slow slow fast fast (I would type the sound effects I just did outloud if I could!). Does this seem like a normal pattern for other pump users?
Either way, could this be a pump problem? it seems very consistently inconsistent for the past month or so. Or perhaps a problem with the reservoirs with the newer looking caps?
I Hope everyone is well, and enjoying the new year in the meantime!
