    Hi Frank and anyone here,
    Asking for help as I have to pay $170 for 10 Tslim Trusteel 6mm infusion sets. Can I buy of anyone and happy to buy post and a bit extra for your time and effort?
    I’m not eligible for NDSS (I’m an international student and have been here in Melbourne from USA for 3 years).
    Thanks to anyone who’s listening and willing to help. I heard they are less than $20 from NDSS? Need cartridges as well.
    Just started Tslim last week andc believe how much it’s helped my blood sugars and overall health. What a blessing.

    • Hi Dave, get in touch with Diabetes Victoria if you haven’t done so already. They may be able to help/point you in the direction of assistance.
      There are also plenty of diabetes groups on Facebook where you might find people willing to help you out with supplies.

    I have experienced constant Ferris wheel control (highs and lows almost daily) since being upgraded from vibe (great control HbA1c in 7’s) to the tslim (8+ HbA1c) over a year ago, anyone had a similar experience. I am in regular contact (phone or face to face) with my health care team who are so helpful, yet perplexed as well. Any one got things that have worked for them❓I don’t feel like it’s helped my life and find it is worse now and I feel living with diabetes is incontrol rather than me in control of living with my diabetes. I no longer work (combination of COVID and health reasons). So money is tight which is not helpful with pump, CGM expenses and health decisions generally.

    I just changed out the cartridge and infusion site yesterday and the pump is putting out insulin but my blood sugars keep rising. So, this afternoon I changed everything out including my cgm, but still rising blood sugars to 400. This pump function has given me trouble for over a month and am really considering going back to the dexcom where my blood sugars were more stable.
