My daughter is going to start a saline trial of the T-Slim tomorrow. In speaking with the rep, I mentioned that the pump class CDE said that she'll need an angled infusion set due to her lack of "chub" in most places. She said she'd be sure to bring an angled set for her. She wore a silhouette infusion set when she saline trialed the Medtronic pump and they used the insertion device. I know that Silhouette, Inset 30 and Comfort/Comfort Short are all basically the same thing and that we can order the inset 30's that have the insertion device if we go with the T Slim, but the Tandem website shows Comfort/Comfort short as the available angled sets, so I'm presuming the rep won't be showing up with an Animas set for her to use for the trial. If it's scary or painful, should I prepare her mentally for the manual insertion? Or should I just say to use the Cleo's to avoid a manual insertion? It's just saline, so if it kinks it kinks. If it matters, she does all of her own shots (with either a 6mm syringe or a 4mm pen) and she does them excruciatingly slowly to me. Would that lead you to believe that maybe manual won't be all bad? Those needles just look so long and thick!
