I have had diabetes now for 23 years and have been pumping for 14 of those years. I use the Paradigm 522 insulin pump along with the 6mm, 23 inch tubing Quick-Sets. Since November, I have been having many, many No Delivery alarms. I have received a new pump, tried other infusion sets (except for Sure-Ts… I’ve heard about a lot of problems with them), other sites (some of which haven’t been used, ever) but the problem persists. This is the first time I have ever had this issue considering the amount of time I have been using the pump. The No Delivery would happen when bolusing. Also, sometimes I wouldn’t even know the insulin wasn’t being delivered properly until checking my blood sugar.
Since my endo and I can’t find any reason why this may be happening, I thought maybe that I have now developed an allergy and that my body is now rejecting the cannula… Maybe because it has been so long that I have been using them. Instead of having a tiny bump when I do my site changes, I now have an inverted bump with “swelling” around. Has anyone encountered this? Has anyone been tested and confirmed that they have developed an allergy? I’ve done everything they make you do when you call Medtronic. It is confirmed that it is literally something with me and not the devices.
I have since restarted MDI and am at a loss. Thinking about ditching the pump because of all of this…
Looking forward to your ideas!
