Re: [IP] MiniMed question about resevoirs

   As with most things, what once seemed daunting becomes second-nature given 
enough passage of time. Melissa REFUSED to insert in her back hips initially 
- now it's her primary site for the past 3 yrs.....And she also didn't think 
she could deal with that portion of the pump jutting out, but acclimated 
herself to that too. Since she uses about 40 units per day, a full 300 unit 
reservoir lasts an entire week...and she changes her insertion set mid-way 
through the week, barring anything unexpected.
   As you personally feel more comfortable with the pump, you'll find things 
that work best for you - even if they may differ from what your trainer 
initially suggested.
