I’ve been pumping for a few years now and I’ve always used the Silhouette infusion sets. I’ve also only ever been able to wear a site in my torso and I’m looking to branch out…
I’ve tried my thighs in the past and although I absolutely love that spot, my body does not. Every time I attempt a thigh sight my BG hits the roof!!
So my gut tells me that the problem really lies with the infusion set…that its probably that the Silhouette goes in on such a shallow angle that the insulin isn’t able to go where ever it is that it needs to go to keep my BG’s from soaring….
Now, seeing as how I know exactly ZERO Type 1’s and/or insulin pumpers that I was hoping that you guys could give me your opinions.
Do you think my gut is right and it’s just the type of infusion set that I’m using or are there just some people that can’t use their thighs and I should give it up?
Thanks! : )
