"Brad, Too bad about your problem. I've used Apidra in my first MM 522 and now for the last 1 1/2 years the Omnipod. I have never experienced a clog. I've been using Apidra for 3 years now."

"thanks for the group. I just starting using Apidra (about 1 month ago - currently I'm only on my fourth reservoir with Apidra). My experience is that the product works well in controlling postprandial blood sugars. My CGM readings are…"

"Oh yes of course. I misread (or read too quickly) your previous statements as you received no "no delivery" charge. My mistake. I understand now. With Caleb, my gut is usually 95% right that insulin isn't getting through,…"

Brad Potter replied to Brad Potter's discussion 'Apidra with Medtronics pump experiencing clogs'
"I'm assuming the clog has occurred because the the Medtronic pump gives a "NO DELIVERY" error message meaning the pump can't move the insulin for some reason. It could also result from kinked tubing etc., but since the error only…"

Lorraine replied to Brad Potter's discussion 'Apidra with Medtronics pump experiencing clogs'
"I feel like we are seeing something very similar. It's not consistent which is why it's been hard to diagnose. Caleb's been ill, we've had a couple Pod errors (which I wonder if it relates to the Apidra use since we typically get…"

"Hi Lorraine - you're right, I'm on my fourth reservoir with Apidra now. In addition, I had given Apidra a try about a year ago, but had only tried a couple reservoirs, so thought it might be worth another attempt. So far, all attempts…"

Lorraine replied to Brad Potter's discussion 'Apidra with Medtronics pump experiencing clogs'
"Just read further through the thread - it seems it is. I hope some of the suggestions here help you and this proves to be a more successful attempt. I really like the lack of tail on Apidra and don't want to go back to Novolog."

"Is this the second time you've tried Apidra, or am I getting my post dates all mixed up? http://www.tudiabetes.org/forum/topics/583967:Topic:58261?page=5&commentId=583967:Comment:734217&x=1#583967Comment734217"

"OmniPod user here. Caleb has been using Apidra since October. He went 2 months swimmingly! It was almost heavenly. Then this 48 hour thing started. It's very inconsistent. Sometimes we get beyond it, and sometimes we get through it - meaning we…"

"MidwestMommy, when I'm on the MM pump and need a lot of insulin in a hurry, I take half of the amount with a syringe on the other side of the body, which works very well. I use Apidra. In other postings on this site, it has been suggested that…"
