Hello, first post.
My daughter has Type 1, she's 5, and has just gone on the MiniMed. So far the numbers are great, and almost everything about it is easy. She loves that she doesn't need shots anymore.
Anyway, is there a trick for reconnecting the infusion set after a bath? We are using the Medtronic Quick-Set.
From reading the book, it seems there is supposed to be some sort of fixed prime in there, but the reading of it is very vague.
After taking a bath, and reconnecting, her numbers just keep going up. She's getting "some" insulin, just not enough, and eventually we have to change the set. Now she's only bathing every 3 days.
It's really a nightmare and anyone with any info on how to change this out properly, the instruction is greatly appreciated. With summer coming up, she does a lot of swimming, and I hope I won't have to change out the set almost daily.
