My 8 year-old son has almost no fat on his body, and the Sure-T infusion set is the only one that seems to work for him. We find that after about 2 days sometimes the infusion sets seem to lose their effectiveness and his #s skyrocket. Has anyone else observed this? Maybe it's specific to kids who heal so quickly? We've also noticed that this is more likely to happen if he doesn't have much insulin left in the reservoir, say less than 5 or 10 units.
The flip side is that we also think that the infusion set is much more effective right after we change it. The first bolus or two maybe.
Any comments or advice would be welcome.
