RE: [IP] Quick-Set - Unreasonalble Response



I don't reuse my reservoirs!  Only time I do something like that is if my
cannula is in a bad site and I had just changed my set or the day
before..then I will disconnect that and reconnect to my reservoir...

Live in Fl., hot and pump is always against my skin so makes insulin warmer
than usual (to me at least)...I never reused my needles either....I do reuse
my lancets, only change once a day unless I have tested 10x and then it
really starts to "ouch" so I change it :)

The problem with reusing  the syringe is, the syringe has a special
lubricant in it to make it move smoothly, and once you have used it, the
lubricant wears off and the movement gets more jerky and slower. (I still
reuse mine though! I don't know very many people who don't!)
