RE: [IP] Animas Inserts



where did you think the tubing went ?  Did it magically disappear ? No it
was put in trash bags after it was removed from the tangle it made at the
sewage treatment plant 

the only way that was helping the environment is if you considered your appt
the environment..

Its more likely that it contributed to additional maintenance on the
treatment plant and most plants have the highest pollution releases during
maintenance ...

 I flushed my tubing down the commode when I lived in an apartment for 5
years without any repercussions or plumbing issues. The way I saw it, I used
less trashbags so it was probably helping the environment.

Yes, the excess amount of plastic is bad.  Did you know that we can't flush
our tubing down the toilet, either? :-)

I use Comforts and T-sets, neither of which has an automatic inserter.  
Comforts have less plastic, and they are inserted at an angle.  T-sets (made
by Applied Diabetes Research) have a big round plastic cup of sorts that the
inserter needle snaps into for disposal.  They are inserted at 90 degrees
and while there is no auto inserter device, I just slap it against mystomach
and it goes right in without pain.  The tubing on the t-sets is slimmer.
