RE: [IP] Re: insulin-pumpers-digest V9 #874

I use the duct Tape and it has been ok for me. I sweat in the cold weather
Them Duct tape doesn't stick as well in the cold weather. I use a hair dryer
very judiciously
To warm the duct tape once it is on me.

Have A Good Day

Subject: [IP] Infusion Set Keeps Falling Off 


    I'm reasonably certain that this has been answered five thousand
different ways but how does one get the MiniMed infusion sets to stay on
during heavy sweating?
    I was cutting my lawn and one fell off. I was putting in concrete block
for a window well and one fell off. Now I've had this problem periodically
in the past, but I must really be sweating much more than I did last summer.
    I've tried the IV3000 underneath and it comes off quicker than the
infusion set by itself. I thouroughly clean the area, there isn't any hair,
and I use alcohol and then IV Prep pads. It's the sweat getting underneath.
    Anyone out there that does stuff that gets them sweating profusely, but
their infusion sets stay on? Without tacks or screws that is . . .


  Two words: DUCT TAPE! Wonderful stuff, but don't be too liberal with it.
It hurts comming off!
 Seriously, I haven't tried it, but neither have I had your problem. IVprep
works well for me. However if I had your problem I may consider using a
small piece during heavy activity. .
