Re: [IPp] Silouette Inserter



Dear Barb:

Emily also started on the Quicksets 6mm in her tummy and had very high blood
sugars in the 500's.  When we took out the canula, it was always crimped.
The CDE then suggested we try the sils, but, Emily said NO WAY JOSE, after
looking at them!
    Soooooooo.....then the CDE said we should try it in the butt/upper hip
area.  since then no problems.  And I should mention that Emily is extremely
thin.....10 years old, 57 pounds.  I have heard good things about the sils,
but, just couldn't convince our little angel who already gets too many pokes
a day.

Good luck!

Jeanne Mom to Emily,10, dx'd at 9, Ellen,7, and Libby,4.
