Re: [IP] infusion sets

Hi Brand(?) --

I just went on the MiniMed 507C several weeks ago ( 9/30/98 ) ... and it's
*marvelous*.  I'm about 5'7"", and weigh a little over 140 lb., but am
"big boned."  I used the Soft-sets with the soft-serter.  One problem
I've encountered is getting air in the infusion set.  ( Once my BGs got
up over 500, and I had DKA with "moderate" ketones.  PU! )

Encourage your daughter to at least *try* the pump.  Once she does,
I doubt she'll *ever* want to give it up ... she'll feel so much *better*
with it, than without.
