Currently 26 weeks pregnant, about to enter the terrifying third trimester. Up until now I’ve been using the Mio infusion sets on my lower back and have had no issues. Changing sites generally 3-4 days. The past week I’ve found with the increase in my insulin needs my sites have been starting to leak after a day or a day and a half. I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue?
Currently my lower back is the only area that works for me for absorption, which eliminates the use of the silhouette sites as the inserter for them is quite possibly the most terrifying thing I’ve ever tried. My stomach has reactions/bleeding when I had used it previously - while there are no signs of lipodistraphy, it is probably on strike after being used for 14 years. My legs have super poor absorption and sites fail within a few hours, and my arms tend to do the same.
Looking for some feedback on the Sure-T infusion set with stainless steel canula as well as those who bolused with a pen and just used infusion sets for smaller insulin amounts and basal. I’d love to hear all of your experiences! Trying to keep this A1C at 5.5 is proving to be hard when my site keeps kicking out!!
