I’m probably being too picky, but I’m trying to find the “perfect” (or almost perfect) infusion set. I’m a fairly new pumper (seven months) so I’ve only tried three so far:
Cleo 90 - This is what I started with and they are my favourites EXCEPT I hate throwing away the inserter each time, and for some reason boluses with the Cleos sting.
Comfort - I tried these but I hated inserting them manually and had issues getting it at the right angle, and the tape also got extremely itchy after only one day, pretty sure I’m allergic to it or something. But I liked that I could get ten sets and five tubings, because I change tubing with the cartridge and not with each set, so have a billion spares sitting around.
ThinSet - I liked these other than that the packaging is bulky (it comes with this plastic needle disposal thing which doesn’t work, or at least I couldn’t figure it out, and it just takes up tons of space).
Any others you guys would recommend? I’m looking for:
Minimal packaging so it’s not bulky to carry around and not thorwing tons of plastic out every few days
Tubing and set in the same package (not like Cloe where they are separate and it’s possible to bring a set but forget tubing, or vice versa), also I liked 10+5 but I’m not sure there are any other sets that do that
I think I like straight-in better than angled, I didn’t mind manually inserting the ThinSets
What sets do you guys use and like and why?
