A few months ago I became frustrated by how many "bad" sites I had. So I reviewed the directions for the Inset 30s I use (Animas) and realized that I was holding my hands wrong on the insertion device, making the angle different. I corrected that and seemed to have less problems.
But I still tend to get kinked (bent) canulas more often than most people do. I suspect it's bent when I can only see a very small bit of the canula through the little window. Then I wait to see if I have high numbers, sometimes I do sometimes I don't.
When I have "good" sites I can keep them for four days with no problem at all which sort of makes up for the lost ones, but still! Anyone have this problem and gained any insight as to how to prevent it?
