I've been using Mio infusion sets since getting my pump a little over a year ago and generally have really liked them. Few issues, they stick great, and are easy to use.
But lately I've been having issues with kinked canulas. They only seem to kink when I use a thigh/side-butt site. I am pretty active and muscular so I have not thought too much of it. In addition, I never seem to completely lose insulin delivery - my BGs stay low enough to indicate that I'm getting some insulin delivered, but go up enough to let me know that I'm not getting my full amount. When this happens, I'll pull out a site and, sure enough, there will be a little kink on the end.
I called Minimed and they agreed to send me out some samples for different sets. The woman I spoke with said that my muscular frame may be to blame (i.e., the canula is hitting muscle tissue in my thighs and, therefore, getting kinked). I've had no issues with kinked canulas in my stomach, lower back, or love handles (all of which are, er, a bit more fatty than my thighs).
Does anyone use different types of infusion sets for different body parts? Is it possible to get a variety when you order them (i.e., two boxes of Mios and one box of Sure-Ts) so that you can switch them up depending on what site you're using?
