1998. That's when I started on my first insulin pump. August of 1998 to be exact. That's almost 15 years ago.
Legs? I've tried thigh sites multiple times over the years, and they just don't work for me. They always kink up within 24 hours.
And I can't go too low on my lower back, or I get bleeders. The sites have to be around my love handles. Any lower, and they turn into a hot mess.
Last week, I was feeling adventurous. So I decided to try a new spot: my butt. The side butt, as Jacquie says, to be exact. I used to wear Medtronic sensors there with good results, so I decided to try my luck with sets.
I'm now on my third butt set, and they're working wonderfully. A huge sigh of relief for me. And my arms and lower back are enjoying the break.
