[IPk] Fwd: Insulin pumps + nickel´allergy

Hi folks
I had an enquiry from someone about a nickel allergy. Does anyone have any 
possible solutions?
It seems she has problems even just inserting the needle and taking it out 
again. She has a Minimed 508 and has been using the Disetronic Tender (?
- inserted at an angle, needle left in) sets. [Not sure if she's actually 
using the Tender (which doesn't leave a needle in, but a teflon cannula) or 
if she's using Rapids or something which do leave the needle in. She has now 
developed an
allergy to the metal and has great difficulty even inserting with the
Sofserter the Sofset Ultimate QR or other sets.
Thanks for any help.
