Please do not get me wrong, I believe in Pump Therapy 100%. It definitely
takes some fine tuning and at least a month to get boluss' and basels
figured out. With the help of this list, a good book ( Pumping Insulin ),
and a good CDE I believe the pump can take a lot of stress out of
diabetes. I wouldn't give my pump up for anything. My confusion (maybe
not the right word ) was with these, in my opinion, parents waking up every
night etc. compared to what my parents did due to what was available to
them, while I was growing up. It is difficult for me to express what my
true intent in is in words, so please, please keep trying with the
pump. Just remember it takes a lot of work at first but in time the pump
truly makes life easier, well I think so. I think Renee did an excellent
job of addressing my "questions".
I have had no problems with the site coming out. I sweat like a pig too.
Or, I guess I should say, since I am female, that I perspire like a
pig. <VBG>. I use IV Preps and that sucker ( site ) stays in place at all
times. I've even dropped my pump and where you disconnect, disconnected
and my site stayed intact. I even get my tubing stuck on things and I feel
a tug but that site stays. Maybe you need to try something else. I am
also certain many members on this great list will provide you with other
suggestions as well.
Good Luck and keep Pumping,
