My little Ms. Caroline, who I have known since 18 months, another reason I hate the D http://diabetesliving.yuku.com/topic/1176
How sad. So much stress thanks to D. Did she go into DKA because of the Lot 8 infusion sets?
It’s unimaginable how strong one must be to care for a loved one until one is in that situation. I wish you continued strength and all the best in caring for Caroline.
Yep the MM Lot 8, grrrrr
I am not the mother, but just a friend of the family who I have known since Caroline first was diagnosed.
Danny (above) and I know the whole family via the internet and now Ms. Caroline is 8.
Prayers are sent to Caroline and her family. So thankful she is on the mend!!! This Lot 8 infusioj set fiasco is so unfortunate. I know now why I had such erratic sugars during the last year.: since changing to the new lot 2 of Quick-sets that were sent and to sure-t’s, I have had no unexplained “No delivery” messages and unaccounted for lows or highs…Many others have been going through turmoil because of this issue…Can Medtronic be held legally responsible?
Medtronic acts like it is no big deal and just send my boxes of quicksets back and THEY WILL SEND ME ONE BOX EVERY 3 WEEKS. The anxiety of not having a large quanity on hand is making me nuts along with everything else that is going on in my life.
I hope someone can afford to sue them.
Sweet Caroline:( How awful for her & her family. All good thoughts surround this beautiful child & her loved ones.
They got written up for quality control problems. I found stuff on a lawsuit watch website.
Holy crap, and I swear the girl on the phone was like no biggie, and I really did not research it.
Thanks for the sites.
Gonna inform Caroline’s mother as she is fighting with MM to have them pay the deductible on her daughter’s hospital stay, this is huge, especially the comments by other parents.
This is huge. I have a big ER bill after using the recalled infusion sets as well. I went back on some Lantus to keep from having a repeat of DKA episodes. Call a law office handling my case at 713-626-3700.

The net says replace 2/3 of basal insulin with Lantus. It works. If you had problems from the lot#8 infusion sets. Call the law office handling my case at 713-626-3700.
I have a couple thousand dollars worth of hospital bills. I have contacted a lawyer who said, “I’ll get back to you”, but he hasn’t. I was hospitalized July 15-18, 2009 and got the recall notice when I returned home.
