What kind of infusion set do you use?
I’m mainly curious. I’m not planning on switching. But it’s been pointed out to me that a lot of people do not manually insert their infusion sets.
I used Comfort Shorts and now I use VariSoft (which is the same, just by Tandem.)
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 1998 when I was 2 and I’ve had an insulin pump since 2004. (I’m 23.) Since 2004, I’ve used Animas pumps and I never had any complaint about Animas (so, obviously I was saddened when the went out of business). I switched to Tandem because they seemed great and because I could continue using a Dexcom CGM (and G4 to G6 is an upgrade). Tandem is great.
All of this rambling is just to say this: I’m curious. I don’t mind inserting an infusion set without the press of a button. Manual insertion is what I’ve always done. But I’ve heard about steel needles and other things recently and I wonder how many of you use those kinds of sets.
And maybe this thread will help any of you who are trying to figure out which set works for you. That would be a nice outcome of my first posted topic.
