Brian B.

I am also quit thin. My BMI puts me just at the underweiht catagory. I use 
MM Silhouette catheters. My CDE suggests I switch from a 17 mm to a 12 mm 
catheter when Medtronics makes them available. In the mean time I pinch the 
skin and place the needle in front of where I'm pinching. This places the 
catheter between my skin and underlying muscle. I haven't encountered any 
problems so far. I've only been pumping 13 days.
