RE: [IP] Leaking Set - PS



Angela,

I was diagnosed the hard way (DKA) in '87, and started pumping in '91.  I
think my first pump was a MiniMed 506?  Have to look in the drawer at home
to see for sure.  Lord how I disliked those bent needle infusion sets!  I
got a MiniMed 508 last April, with an agreement to upgrade to the Paradigm
this summer.  The ability to swim with the Paradigm, and use standard AAA
batteries is a real plus for me (an old Florida beach bum).

I think just enough insulin leaked out of the set to make my shirt stink.
;-)

Kell

That's cool that your bg's didn't go any higher.  So I'm guessing not much
of the insulin leaked out?  How long have you had diabetes and what type of
pump do you use?... Angela
