Re: [IP] darn infusion sets

amy, how long are the rapids? that you are using. sounds like they may be too 
long for where you are putting them. they shouldn't hurt after insertion at 
alisha used to get red spots from insulin injections like she was allergic to 
the insulin but has not had this problem with insertion sets. and she uses 
the rapids. 8mm in abd and 6 mm in her arms. (tried the legs but they got 
blood in the tubing with in 12-24 hrs.) she can keep most sites 3-5 days 
using ivprep and iv3000 before and after insertion. this is with swimming and 
other kids related activities (hopefully not up a 6 ft ladder in to a loft 

hope you find something that works for you.
