"I've learned to let the insulin warm up to room temp for a full hour. I see more bubbles even at the 45 min mark vs 1hr."

"I put like 1.5x the amt of air in vs. the insulin I'm taking out, so the pressure "pushes" more. I think this creates some tension that may be useful to managing bubbles. I have no evidence of that but haven't noticed any…"

air bubbles issue

Every day we check our tubing and when needed purge the bubbles out. I am now using a new batch of reservoirs and still have BUBBLES! Anyone with…See More
