I know the Quick set topic has been discussed extensively, but I am adding another frustration topic with them. I switched to Sure-T’s because I had problems with the the Quick-sets. I still have a partial box of the quicks that I use here and there to use them up. I had one on for three days prior and I got a no delivery alarm. Tried again, and all was okay. It was the first time I have ever had that. I decided last night to put another QS in (I know, I am a glutton for punishment). I had a feeling upon insertion that it did not go in right. Stayed up for two hours afterwards and bs was a little high, but not too bad. Got up this morning, and really high. Nothing to eat since way before set change. Took a correction. One hour later only dropped 5 points. Went to work and 4 hours after getting up still high. Changed set with a Sure-T and bs dropped to normal within an hour (after a correction). Luckily I carry spares with me. I know they are not needed with the Sure-T’s, but since I am still fairly new to the pumping world, I don’t take any chances.
I wish I could be one of the people that have zero problems with the Quick-Sets. But I guess if had zero problems, I would not have discovered the Sure-T’s. Thanks Dave for that. And speaking of Dave, I am sure he will tell me “I told you so”, and why did I use them. I will definetly just use them for emergencies from here on out. Just wanted to vent a little. Kind of has ruined my whole day because I don’t like being high, makes me feel awful, and now I know why I didn’t sleep goo.
