What do you do with your infusion set tubing?

Poll dates: December 24 - 31, 2006
Total Votes: 417

Study after study has shown the benefits of insulin pump therapy, so more and more CWD families use pumps. One challenge pump users have is what to do with the infusion set tubing. About 30% of CWD users let the tubing hang out, and about 40% stuff it inside their clothing. A small number wrap it around something.

If you're finding that the tubing is a problem, infusion set maker Unomedical has a product called tubeguard™ that might help. Ask your pump company for one.
