"I just switched to Mio. Not as painful to insert, one less item to carry since the inserter is part of the set. The colored portion is just the end that attaches to the set, about half an inch of plastic. The container that the set comes in is also…"

"Yeah I also use the Mio. I wondered the same thing at first. I like the shorter length tubing since I wear my infusion sets in my stomach. Maybe they don't have a big group of people who want the shorter length that are adults. It's not…"

"Wow! I would really like to hear something from Minimed and/or FDA on this one because something's rotten here. Clear Mio 6mm approved with 32" tubing Colored Mio 6mm approved with 23" tubing Unless the 23" and 32" tubing…"

"OK. I have a purple pump...and I love the color. I am trying the longer tubing for the first time--42". I inserted the cannula in my arm for the first time and the longer tubing makes it much easier. Like Zoe said--easier to do things. What is…"

Switching to Mio sets... aggravated by color "choices"

Hi all, just gotta whine here for a minute.This morning, I called Minimed to order new supplies. I've been using Sof-Sets for about 10 years and now it's discontinued (which I knew) so I'm switching to Mio. It comes in colors (pink, blue, clear) because... trendy? (I guess? "Make your insulin pump a fashion accessory," even the part that plugs into your skin that you don't want to call attention to?) I don't want colors, and I also don't need 32" of tubing between the pump and my body, so I…See More
