"At this point, I don't think SofSets are available as just the infusion
set without the tubing. It would be nice if they were. You CAN just
change the site, and throw away the extra tubing -- that, at least,
wouldn't waste the insulin, and makes the set change a little faster,
provided you have enough insulin in your syringe to last until next
Sils ARE available as a combo pack of 10 buttons and 5 tubings, and a
lot of people are using them that way with no problem. I wonder if
MiniMed will get the message! "
Mini Med, good as they are, will not sell the silhouettes infusion set
alone. I have written and called them about this for over a year. They
say until the demand is there, they won't do it. Even though I have a dr
awer full of unused tubing and have asked them to take it back, recycle
it, etc. They have combo packs with 5 single infusion sets and 5
infusion sets with tubing. So they already make them in a single infusion
package, they just won't sell them that way to us.
UNTIL WE MAKE A LOT OF NOISE ABOUT IT!!!!!.
I have problems with sites and often go through two infusion sets (not
reservoir or tubing) or more to get a good site to last 2-3 days. I have
begged them to sell me the sets alone (I would buy three or four times as
many sets as tubing.) But they know they have us cornered. AHHHH,
PROFITS BEFORE PEOPLE AGAIN.
