So do you do all that to prevent a rash, keep the pod sticking to her, or both? I haven't used anything between her skin and the adhesive, but I'm using tape or a bandage, plus an arm band over the pod to keep it on. Nexcare waterproof tape is great, but I just ordered tegaderm to use instead and cover the whole pod. Why do you cut a hole in it? I've also tried Mefix tape, but it is not at all waterproof.
Liz is so lean and doesn't even have any fat on her tummy that it's not my favorite spot, but we need another site and she's willing to put it there, so I go with it. She doesn't like the bum.
Wow, so you only did MDI for like 3 months post-diagnosis? Liz was diagnosed last February, so we did MDI for 6 months. I'm sure Ella is still honeymooning, as I think Liz is, so I'm sure that makes it harder to level out her BGs. It's so frustrating. I'm fully expecting her A1C to go up next time instead of down like I was hoping.
