Re: [IP] Re: insulin-pumpers-digest V5 #457



I had this same problem when using the sofsets.  I switched to the
silhouettes and have had absolutely no probs whatsoever.  I love them!  It
was hard getting over inserting that big needle but you know, there is
nothing to it and I think it is more painless than the sofsets!!  Jenni
