Re: [IP] huge needles



Christa   Like you I thought all the needle were huge. When I started on the
pump the nurse that had me use the bend needle for the first three days
could not get it to work . After three needles later it did work. What I
have use since those first three days is the Sof-set Micro OQ infusion set
REF MMT-320 before they came out this infusion set I had problem with the
larger size sof-set since they came out with this infusion set no problems
at all by the way I'm quite slim and don't have an inch to pinch. Its been
quite good for me.   Bob    Diabetic 46 years and punping since 9-1-99 and
still the best change ever and  liking it.
