"I hate 23 inch tubing on any pump. 43 inch means i can wear my pump anywhere. 23 means i hold my pump in my hand all the bloody time. Not good for me, the insulin or my ability to move. I hare my insurance company."

"1) I can definitely "pinch an inch". 2) I attach to my abdomen usually. Off to the side, keeping away from my belly button. 3) The adhesive seems to be the Problem. I use the adhesive wipe before attaching and it doesn't help. In…"

Zairra replied to BlessedLife's discussion 'Mios Infusion Sets' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"I could use them if you're giving them away. How much body fat do you have? I haven't noticed any difference using the Mios vs the Quicksets other than the fact that the Mios don't stick to my skin as well as the Quicksets."

"You might want to read the recent Time Magazine article on health care costs; very revealing. It explains quite well why we, in the USA, are paying such a premium for a similar level of service as elswhere"

"I'm not an expert nor would I pretend to be, but it sounds like they might be kinking. Do you have any pain or discomfort prior to or during the NO DELIVERY error? And where on your body are you trying to place your sites when this is…"

BlessedLife replied to BlessedLife's discussion 'Mios Infusion Sets' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"They come out in less than 48 hours. I get NO DELIVERY messages. I called Medtronic and was told that it may be because of the amount of body fat that I have as opposed to the Quick Sets. I will check the mm size and let you know."

Bill replied to BlessedLife's discussion 'Mios Infusion Sets' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"Hey there, They were pretty hard to get used to, but once I got the hang of them they worked really well. Would suggest to give them another try, and keep them for back up. Cheers"

"Are they 6mm or 9mm? Are you having insulin delivery issues or do you just find them uncomfortable?"

Mios Infusion Sets

I see that we can't give these away here. I got a box and used a few trying them out. They do not work for me, but since a couple are missing, I can't return them.What should I do with them? I am sure somebody else can use them. I'd rather not throw them away, but I will if that is the only option.Thanks!See More

BlessedLife replied to Melissa M.'s discussion 'Insulin pumps at the beach' in the group Diabetes and Women
"It is this elastic belt with a zipper pouch attached. When you go to their site, make sure that you get the one for a pump. There are holes for the tubing. Many runners, bike riders wear them to hold their cell phones, a bit of money, a key while…"
