Hmmm. I really don't know what to do. Today has been better than yesterday-- lowest was 54, highest 226-- so maybe I'll get back on track? Hopefully? I guess I will give my basal rate changes a couple more days, to see if that does anything. If it doesn't help, I'll try the Sure-Ts. My mom's calling tomorrow to have them sent.
I'm not really sure if kinking is the problem, or what. The one I took out yesterday had some blood in the cannula and there was actually a small bruise under my skin. This is very rare though. The thing I don't understand is, it seems that if my bg keeps going up and up after a set change, my pump doesn't register the "no delivery" for some reason. I'll know the site is bad, because I'm high or it's bloody, but I get no alarm. Shouldn't the pump be able to register this more closely?
I can't believe your daughter inserts them herself. That just blows my mind. I have never ever ever done an injection or inserted a set without a) my mother doing it for me, b) an Injectease, or c) the Quickserter. I can't bring myself to put the thing through my skin! Was she ever afraid of needles/doing it herself? Or is she just not bothered by it?
