For anyone who has used both 90 deg sets, and the VariSoft (or whatever the other pump manufacturers call theirs) sets, I am curious of your opinions. The VariSoft, incase you aren’t familiar with the Tandem naming, ar the angled insertion ones that you manually insert and can be inserted at varied angles up to 45deg.
By my calculation the 17mm cannula version should have a max depth of about 12mm, which has my interest piqued. I have a lot of absorption problems, and the 9mm cannulas of the 90 deg sets (or 8mm for the steel ones) just don’t seem to go quite deep enough for me. I am a little nervous about the angled sets and how they feel going in. The Dexcom G5 insertion could be a little painful at times, and it is fairly similar. I am also wondering how it would affect the build up of scar tissue considering the cannula goes through a larger portion of skin.
Any advice and experiences is much appreciated!
