Hello JDRF group-
Looking for some help. I have a minimed pump and I am using the quick-set infusion sites. I have now gone through 8 different sets, with each one kinking after insertion. I have attached a picture of what it looks like.
The sets look normal/intact before insertion. I use the insertion device, I have tried multiple body locations, and I have no visible/palpable scar tissue.
Furthermore my pump isn’t alarming saying I have an insulin flow blockage- I only know because my blood sugar is high (dexcom) and not responding to correction.
I have used the other infusion sets in the past- mio, silhouette, and sure-t.
Has anyone had this happen before? Does anyone have fool-proof ways of insertion that won’t result in kinking of the cannula. I know there was a recall years ago, but this is a different lot number. I’ve already talked to Medtronic who said the sets were probably faulty
