Please say it's not only me.
I attach my pump on my belly and switch sides for balance. I've noticed that I'm more likely to lose my infusion set connection if I attach my pump on my right. What I mean by that is sometimes I wake up to a connector that's almost off. I also want to add that it's not all the time, but if it does happen, it happens on my right. I think it's something about how I twist and turn when I sleep because it's something I notice when I wake up.
I just noticed it right now. I woke up around 1:45am and sure enough, while the section that gives me insulin is still inserted, I don't think it will make it if I go back to sleep much less through the day. I'm going to switch it out now.
I have a bunch of extra insertion units (separate from the tubing). Yes, I use IV preps to make my skin sticky. I think it wears down through daily use: working out, steam sauna (I cover up my belly in the sauna on purpose), and multiple showers.
BTW, I like the infusion set that I use: the Medtronic Silhouette. They lay pretty flat AND I can connect them pretty easily.
Just wondering if I'm the only one who twists and turns in her sleep that has this happen every once in awhile?
