I have been type 1 for 17 years. I have been on the Medtronic Minimed pump for 16 years. The last year or so I have been having problems with the injection sites. I have blood pooling up inside of my body, therefore blocking the absorption of insulin. I am educated and take good care of myself. My A1C's are in the 6's. However, this problem is causing me to be high sometimes up to 8-10 hours at a clip. Once I change my site I usually bolus with my pump to make sure it is bringing down the high blood sugar. Once I bolus it may go up from there. When I decide to change my site I will see blood and continue the cycle of changing my site, blousing and waiting. My Dr. thinks I am a total phenomenon. I am now trying the OmniPod to see if that might work better. Has anyone had this issue and if so how have you dealt with it? I'm looking for any help available out there!! Thanks!!
