Re: [IPk] Infusion sets sites



Hi Melissa

Yes I am, worth a try but I'm not due to change my set now until Sunday, but
shall have a try with the one I got on now..

Not keen on the 'hubby' option even yes he's also a T1 and well practiced at
injectioning after 33 years, but alas I've never had anybody inject me with
insulin, even my very first insulin injection way back in '89 I did myself
under guidence...

I let everybody how I get on with it, when it gets a proper test out as I'm
not
due to change sets until Sunday!  but will do the safety loop on my current
tubing as a dry run..

Jo

Hi Jo

Are you considering trying a safety loop?
