Re: [IPk] Cathator Life



I was advised to change sets every three days, ideally after a bath or
shower, but always after washing my hands.

I have been lazy a couple of times only to find that my blood sugars soared
and I ended up with lumps under the skin.  The lumps went after two or three
days.

I use Minimed Sof-set Micro Infusion Sets with my Disetronic H-Tron Plus
pump.  This is because I am extremely slim and the Disetronic sets were
horrendous!
