I’m hoping you can help me out, I am new to the pump (just a week now) and it has been really great except for one thing in particular. I have noticed huge air bubbles in the line 3 times now and as you can imagine this sent my blood sugars soaring before I realized the issue. The first time I think it was due to cold insulin (which now I am told to just keep out at room temp. for up to 30 days) btw, is this ok to do?? So I thought I had the bubbles figured out until after showering I reattached and realized an hour later my sugars had went up and AGAIN I had a large air bubble. I believe this was from taking it off to shower and then putting it back on. I let the line hang straight down and driping while I showered but it still had the bubble?
Any ideas why this keeps happening and what I can do to prevent this. I guess I will just have to prime it whenever I disconnect for now. Is this what you do? Please let me know if I am missing something, those air bubbles sure are an issue!
Thanks for any insight!
