Just wondering if anyone here has tried or uses the Sure-T infusion sets. I've been using the Quick-Set for as long as I can remember, but my endo told me I need to switch.
There are three things that seem like I'd need to get adjusted to:
1. The self-insersion. I love my spring-loaded inserter!
2. The two circles attached to me. My abdomen is limited on flat real estate (too many insulin injections in one spot as a child) so I'm curious about how it works with the two attachments.
3. The metal needle itself. The thought kind of grosses me out. Please tell me it's not that bad! ;)
Any and all insight would be appreciated!
No problem! Good luck! :)
When you have a delivery problem solved by keeping some waterproof tape in your desk. Clean your hands and take off the sure-t and reinsert in new location and put a stip of waterproof tape over it. Works for me the few times I have had to do it.
I used the Quick-set infusion sets and then switched to the Sure-T. The insertion is comfortable and I never feel the needle. The two circles are not a problem Good luck!
I've been using Sure-T's for a few years, and they work great. My skin hardly reacts to them. But sometimes my belt presses into the needle and hurts when I bend over to pick something up off the floor. I guess I'm too chicken to use that needle anywhere but my abdomen!
I manually insert with no problems. I have had a few problems with the needle getting to my muscle, I am lean, but i Just reinset and put a piece of waterproof tape over it. I am happier than when I use plastic canulas.I have been using sure-T for a year now.
I love the sure-T!! best infusion set in my opinion, and I've tried them all!!!
This morning, my initial order for Quick Set, 9 mm with 32" tubing was placed. I am thinking of trying the Mios as well. My first insulin pump should be here soon, then I get to meet with the trainer. I am on my way!
Call medtronic help line and get some sample sure-t's and give them a try.
