[IP] Quickset problems - long vent
ok here we go again - after having so much problems with quicksets I've been
using my accumulated spare supplies of sof sets that I use at the office and
and each of my families homes for the just. Now I've decided to use the
quicksets again and guess what - they leak at the connection where it
attaches to the reservoir. - Am I the only one having this problem of
leaking - when I used the sof sets they work fine with the reservoir. last
nite I thought maybe I over tighten the set onto the reservoir so I changed
it at 2:40 am since it leaked heavily and when I woke this morning after
doing a correction at 3:40 am, my BS was 105 and didn't seem like there was
a leak. Now at the office I checked my BS before having a late breakfast and
my BS is 291 - huh why? - did correction bolus and looked and guess what -
its leaking again at the reservoir connection -
so now I didn't bring another vial of novolog because I had plenty of
insulin in the reservoir - so looks like either I just change the tubing and
not refill the reservoir with the 1 extra sof set I have or just keep doing
correction boluses with 20% extra and just keep testing.
will call Minimed again - I think the quickset does not connect correctly to
the reservoir - I guess when I see my endo I'm going to try the Ultraflex
from desetronics - just like staying with 1 company to avoid an extra copay
and not sure if desetronics is covered under UHC.
Just wondering if anyone else is having these problems with quicksets.
