Re: [IP] Re: insulin-pumpers-digest V7 #529

I had some of the same type problems,  turned out that the set I was 
using , SoftSet was 9mm long, was bending when I inserted it,  I've 
changed to the 6mm set now and 'Hopefully' I've solved that problem:)   
I'm just a skinny old man and don't have enought fat to use the 9mm.
