    In reading your post I noticed the BG range is different than in the states. So while I didn’t understand exactly what your sugars were running, I got the idea. Thanks for posting! There’s real comfort in knowing others out there understand what I, as a Type 1, go thru.

  2. Frank, I have been pumping for almost ten years. I have never found a 90 degree set that works for me. As much as I hate the manual insertion of the angled set Comfort Shorts (Silhouettes with Medtronic), I almost never get bad sites. Maybe once a year at the most. With Insets and QuickSets I would get painful and/or kinked sets about once a month. So be open to trying another type of infusion set.

  3. I am so sorry you had this experience. But I am glad you are doing better. That is some scary stuff.

    I referred your blog to the TUDiabetes.org blog page for the week of July 4, 2016.

  4. I’m sorry you had to go through it. It is part and parcel of pumping and bound to happen from time to time. Of course it tends to happen at the most inopportune times. Looks like you acted quickly and handled it very well. It is remarkable how fast a site failure can lead to sky-high BG and ketones.
