But... from time to time I'm still getting some really annoying/ weird blood sugar situations. I'm not sure if the infusion sets that Animas uses are less sturdy than the sets Medtronic uses but I have vastly more issues now than I did with OPP. I've noticed a few things with the Animas infusion sets:
- Kinks at the end of the animas set are alot more likely
- The cannula has a much greater tendency to dislodge itself
- Leaving the infusion set in for more than 3 days leads to a bit of a calcium/ scar tissue build up
For the past few weeks the only times I've gone above 225 have been from a case of the kinks. I have no real desire to ever get off an insulin pump but at least with shots you know the insulin was delivered. With a pump getting a case of the kinks is just something you have to deal with; but with tighter regulation I can be pretty sure that if my blood sugar is above 250 something is going on.
