Has anyone who has a Medtronic pump using tubing tried the unomedical tube guard its a great way to keep your tubing uniform instead of stuffing it into your belt line.http://www.intrapump.com/tubeguard.html

Thanks for the input Harlan! What length tubing do you find works best for you? I've been using the 32 inch…I think the shorter one might be too short for me even though I'm not tall (5'3") My infusion sites extend from my upper thigh to just above my waist and I like to carry my pump in a pocket. I'm lovin' my pump although last adjustment on the basal is causing me some hypo episodes so we still need to adjust!

Wow…it reminds me of the gizmo used to roll up garden hoses, except on a much smaller scale. I've been on my pump for nearly 2 months now and do find it somewhat challenging to stuff the tubing out of sight. Interesting product. Have you tried it?

I do have one and it is a very neat item to have I work in public service in a office and I always wear it on my duty belt with no problems. I will be posting a new site to find the tube guard cheap
