Re: [IP] pump malfunction

On the off chance that you dislodged your set, try doing a change-out. In the 
meantime, give yourself an injection to get your BGs down.

<< Yesturday at work i caught the bit of the pump that sticks out from the 
 on a cupboard (the top of the syringe/connecting line).It didnt seem damaged 
 but since then my sugars have been 14/15 and i am giving xtra insulin but it 
 takes a long time for the sugars to come down. i phoned minimed and they 
 said to keep monitoring it but i dont know how i can test the pump is 
 working properly or what else to do.the door is closing ok and the syringe 
 seems in place although i can move it manually which im not sure i could do 
 before.the latch which goes over the syringe seems quite floppy but the 
 minimed line said thats ok. when i do a prime i can see insulin coming out 
 although not for the first 2 or 3 digits. any ideas please . i am feeling 
 abit tired but not sick. >>
