Re: [IP] (Long) Ever feel like one of the three stooges?



 I agree. In my opinion Infusiion sets atre the weak link in pumping. It doesn't
matter how
 smart the pump is, if the insulin isn't being absorbed properly there's
trouble. I just had a set
 in my hip, 90 angle, absorbtion was very erratic, fine at times at others it
seemed to take
 forever to have an effect. When I changed the set the canula was covered in
blood & the site
 bled a little. But it wasn't bleeding enough to be visible under the set. I
hate it when that
 happens. My TDD is only about 20 units a day so I've never had an occulsiion
alarm.
