Liz replied to Leata's discussion 'Problems with Insets (vs. other infusion sets)?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I have been using the Insets since I began pumping six years ago. I use the IV Prep wipes before I insert and that helps them stay secure. As for the canula not making it into my body, that happened once when I forgot to take the blue cover off!"

Liz commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Animas Insulin Pump Users'

Liz replied to Spenser Beasley's discussion 'Inset 30' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I tried the 30s for awhile. I liked it, but my sugars didn't. I guess I had trouble getting it into the correct position every time. So I went back to using the regular Inset and all is fine."

Liz commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Animas Insulin Pump Users'
"I put two coats on, drying after each swipe. In almost six years of pumping I have lost only a couple sets."
