Just wanted some advice regarding Cannulars please. My problem is the
length of time they last, which on average seems to be 1- 2 days. I think
I have only managed to do the 3 days twice. Frequently I need to change
them because of blood in the tube. Tonite being a good example.
Blood sugars shot up to 18, checked the cannular and blood was seeping up the
tube. I also find this happens a lot after I have had a shower. (i
tend to disconnect the pump for a shower and use the clear plastic gadget to
seal the cannulars site.) Is this a common problem or is it just me?
I am also still battling to get good blood sugar control, and feel
continually frustrated that i'm still not geting there.
