First problem

Scott Benner

Not so much a problem as a mistake... I missed for the lack of a better term.  When I replaced Arden’s Pod last night I placed it too high on her abdomen.  The area I choose wasn't fatty enough so the insulin wasn’t being absorbed properly.  This led to high blood glucose readings.  After I figured out what happened and replaced the Pod with a new, properly placed one all is well again.

 

Lesson learned.

 

UPDATE: It turns out that the cannula got kinked, I called the manufacturer today to find out more about why that happened and was told that the cannula most likely hit muscle on it’s way in and bent.  Until Arden gets bigger we will have to be more vigilant about exactly where the pump is placed.
