I have had a pump for 15 year, and used medtronic for most all of that time. I have been using the Quick sets for many years without a lot of issues. For the last 6-8 months, I have had nothing but problems when inserting the sets. I end up changing my site up to 4 times a day when it comes time to change it! They kink over and over again, until finally I just get lucky and one works.
I will say that this did not start until I had to order from a 3rd party (my insurance no longer has an in network contract with medtronic). I called the supply company when it first happened and they sent me a replacement box of set in case it was a bad lot. Same problem happened, I ordered a new serter in case it was bad. I even have my husband putting in my quick sets, but it is still the same issue. Also, I use only my stomach area, but I do rotate the sites and sides.
Has anyone else dealt with this? What have you done to fix it? I tried a Sure T set once recently and really liked it except for taking it out. It hurt to remove and caused bleeding at the site!
I am open to all suggestions at this point, it is so frustrating!! Plus causing severe irregular sugars.
