RE: [IP] insulin pooling using Insets

Debbie - Animas was very helpful when I had to go from using the 9mm length
to the 6mm because of problems.  They sent me a few to try first to see if
that helped.  I have lost a lot of weight since going on the pump last Oct.
and was having trouble with bent cannulas and stinging.   I use the 6mm
Insets now and love them!    I get some stinging if I try & use the area
above my waist so just avoid using that and have gone to the back "pocket"
area on my back side, my lower abdomen and my legs.   

Do you have the problem in all site locations?   If so, maybe it is too
shallow.   Since I'm rather "new" to pumping there may be others with better
ideas.   But giving the longer cannula a try might resolve the problem.

Subject: [IP] insulin pooling using Insets

Insets from Animas. I use the 6mm length. After 1 1/2 days my bgs start
going up. When I take the set out there is usually a large lump under the
set around the canual. My thinking is that the lump is my humalog pooling
up. Has this happened to anyone else? I am due to order today or tomorrow
for new supplies. Does anyone think the 9mm would be better? I am not heavy
but I do not think of myself as thin either! (Would that be "just right"?)
Thanks for any input anyone can give!
