So I just got my MM Paradigm 723 yesterday, I have to say I enjoy not having to shoot up multiple times through out the day and having to lug around everything with me. Having this on my side and having the ability to have my meeter feed it my BG and then telling it my carbs it is nice that it does all the math for me.
I do have a few stupid questions. These might be just me but hoping someone out there can help me.
First the portion attached to me, can it easily be pulled out? For example I have a small 2 year old and a 7 year old can they hook it and pull it out rather easy?
Second can I sleep on this same area with out stopping the flow of insulin in?
Also they sent me quick sets which are 24" long I believe, trying to figure out if its better to get longer tubing or if it just gets in the way?
And last, do I have to worry about the sticky factor on the quick set? It seems to be attached well, but taking showers, and sweating does it lose this factor, should I invest in the new IV3000 set to help keep it in place?
Appreciate the help, I know this is the right thing to do for me to bring my A1C under control, but I can’t help being nervous that I am going to pull it out or do something to stop it from doing it’s job.
Thanks for the answers and feedback!
