"I never had that happen, but I would definitely call Animas if I were you. At the very least they need to make a note of what lot/batch the Inset was from. And they'll probably replace it for you :)"

"I gave up on the inset stuff, couldn't deal with the plastic contraption. I now use one that I just push in manually. Much easier."

Problems with Animas Insets

I was wondering if anyone was having any problems with their Animas insets breaking. Sometimes, when I pull back the inset to get ready to insert it, it breaks. It falls apart, basically. The last night, I was changing the inset and inserted/injected it into my stomach where it basically fell apart. The white spring part broke off of the plastic bit. It hurt quite a bit...I'm sure the guy in the next apartment loved hearing my string of curse words. I was just wondering if anyone else had these…See More

"I hate traveling with my pump - the concern with xrays, TSA, all of the supplies and extra backups, the different kind of xray machines in AMS, and the delay to explain everything. So now I just go back to MDIs on trips. It's way easier."
