Re: [IP] Priming the Paradigm

I just been pumping since the 1st of Sept and priming my softSets, 24 in,
takes about 10-15 units,  sure sounds like something is wrong to me.
When you prime, do you watch the end of the set to see insulin come out?
maybe there is a air bubble ?  I've had mine pump a little insulin and THEN
a air bubble which WON'T show up on the pump.  (Idon't think it will:)
Anyway check the tubing for air.
