"Have you tried using a different set? The angle sets (Comfort or inset) give you a longer cannula and many people find them more reliable than the 90 degree sets. The Comforts come in 13mm and 17 mm lengths. Ask Animas to give you a few to try out."

Can't Bolus more that 12 units w/o leaking- Pumping NEWBIE!

New to my Pump! 6 day newbie!! My issue is I have alot of :real estate: and i am using the inset 9mm and I can only bolus about 15 units at a time w/o it leaking. I need 24 units ( im super IR). Ive been splitting the dose into 2- and that seems to work fine-Does this happen to anyone else? In 6 days i've had to change my site 4 times. Is it bc im thick and the cannula is not far enough down? This is a totally bummer for me. Not a deal breaker yet...but wonder what i can do?Thanks~See More

"I know that I can change the number of hours (not sure what the max is) but if I really am in trouble, 12 hours makes for a sensible choice. This morning, I had the same problem. I bolused (sp?) at about 7:30 last night and went to sleep at about…"
