"Not telling is not an option for me since my pump used to always sets off the detectors anyway - and TSA guidelines state that you must let the screeners know about devices BEFORE the screening process begins. So, for the last several years - I…"

"I agree with your comment Christel... I aways tell the first TSA agent who checks ID and boarding pass about my pump - they always tell me that I have to wait and let the screener know. By that time I am being pressured to put my purse, computer,…"

"I agree with you about getting better results on pump. I would only go back to MDI if I had no other choice. I only average ~1 injection a day when i want to take some of the burden off of my inset site due to a large bolus."

"I don't have any suggestions (I was going to suggest extended bolus but seems you've tried that). But with injections wouldn't you be delivering the insulin just as fast as with a pump?"

Speed of Animas Ping bolus delivery (even when set to "slow) contributing to Skin Lumps?

I am experiencing the return of an old problem that caused me to have to take an extended/unwanted pump vacation several years ago. The problem of scars/fat deposits/lumps... I am careful to change my site every 48 - 36 hours; rotate site locations; prep skin properly...I started to think that the bolus delivery rate was a big part of the problem even though I keep my pump delivery set to "slow".The only thing that seems to help is to use the pump to calculate the insulin that I need. I write…See More
