As " try a new box of canulas. " is obviously on her list of answers I assume
that this has worked in the past and they ought to accept them back in that
Canula manufacture does seem a bit prone to variations in the end result to me.
I have noticed some boxes work faultlessly and others not.

A good Christmas so far except for a Medtronic Veo issue late on Christmas
Eve. Very high bg for a day or two (10 - 29 ish bg) I changed the canulas
and sites 3 times and insulin twice. Phoned the help line about 9.30 pm
24.12. Helpful in as much as they confirmed I had done all the right things
such as changing everything and testing for drips. The only extra suggestion
the on call operator came up with was to try a new box of canulas. This I
did and it worked. I eventually went to bed on 7.9 and woke up Christmas
morning on 7.7.
I am loathe to bother to send back the canulas used at that time, as
experience has taught me Medtronic don't accept any responsibility if they
reply at all.
There didn't appear to be any kinks in the tubing and the test drips were
fine. Canula sites don't appear to be damaged as I haven't had type 1 for
long. No stress, no illness. Does anyone have any ideas what it was all
Happy New Year to you all and thank you for all your help in the last few
months. (The tip about dialing up the units and putting those units down the
sink and then using an insulin pen, was a great help in this situation.)
