tubing?B  I like the 23"tubingB  hate to waste all that insulin!

B I never had luck with the top part of my butt because my wallet would rub
against the site and sometimes cause it to dislodge. I do use quicksets 90
degree in the area above my waistline on my back (4:00 and 7:00) without
issue.

B B I have a question about placing infusion sets on the top part of your
butt. I
did try this once or twice, and it worked fine - until I laid down in bed. I'm
a
side sleeper, so when I turn over in my sleep or sit up to get out of bed, my
set gets "smushed" as it were. Any advice? I use the Quick sets 90-degree. Is
that the problem? I'd appreciate any suggestions as my abdomen is quite used
up
after pumping since 2001!
