thanks for all your suggestions guys!
Haven’t tried arms @stephen, got to admit I don’t really fancy it and there’s not a lot of ‘bingo’ to my wings, but I’m willing to give anything a go!
@mustard – you wouldn’t necessarily have to wear the pump on your arm . In the winter if the cannula bit is on the upper arm under a sleeve, the tubing could go through the arm hole and the pump could sit in it’s usual home in my bra, (or clipped on a belt fellas!). Not sure I’d like the site on show in the summer if I was wearing a vest but hey – there’s a potential 6 months of arm siting available (more like 10-11 given we live in the UK!)
I do wear it strapped on my arm in the gym – with my mp3 strapped to the other arm, the equal weighting helps to equally tone the arms! – I’ve had a few curious looks and some braver approaches enquiring if it’s a heart rate monitor or a GPS! (gps in a gym?? no, really, I can find my own way to the treadmill thanks!)
@alison, I haven’t tried my thighs as they’re pretty lumpy too and vain as it is, I kinda think the Quicksets might stick out a fair bit in skinny jeans too?!
How do you see what you’re doing, putting it in your back???
My hips and bum definitely have plenty of pinchable fat – which is why I really don’t get why the sets aren’t working. @mustard, I do generally try to do a correction with the alt set/alt site to really give it a chance rather than just taking it out at the first sign of a rise so I’m pretty sure it’s a more longer term not getting basal in there over a few hours thing than an insertion thing.
Will give all suggestions a shot though! Damn these pesky cannula’s – they will not beat me!
Thanks for the link too @alison……I’m off over there then….
