Hi i'm beginning to wonder if my body hates my infusion sets- i'm using minimed, After 18 years of injections I started pumping November 2009
My first month of pumping went great- i was using quickset 9mm
Then in Dec my blood sugars would go high for no reason and i figured out that my infusion set wasnt working- after numerous times i switched to quickset 6mm canulas
only once out of at least 10 times did i get the "no delivery alarm". the only way i knew i had a problem was that my bg's would skyrocket
so i called MM again and they sent me silouettes- seemed to go ok for the first one but then i ran into the same issue many times.
i met with a pump trainer and she said i was doing everything correctly (insertion etc)
my silouettes are working from 0-24 hours. today my silouette quit, i put in a new one, then no delivery alarm again. so thought maybe my body doesnt like the cannulas and i tried the sure T (metal needle insead of cannula)
then i got 3 no delivery alarms in a row.
i believe i've narrowed everything down to infusion set problems- i ran diagnostic tests on my pump many times, my tubing is never kinked etc.
anyone have advice? i dont want to go back to injections because pumping has made me feel so much better
