    I thought I remembered reading about being able to samples of different infusion sets, but I don't remember where. Is that a real thing, or am I dreaming? How do I get some?

    Also, DS wants to try a longer tubing (for arm sites). We currently use the Quickset with 23" tubing, but I see they now offer 32" tubing. Has anyone tried it? It seems kinda long to me, but he s the one using it.....

    Any input is appreciated!

    Maybe give MM a call and tell them which pump you use and they can send you samples? Or ask your endo if he/she has samples for you. In any case, here's the link for sets to be used with the MM pumps (not sure which models though):

    Specify which tubing length as well.

    My son also used those..Then last year at D camp they let him try the MIO.
    They have the xlong tubing as well.He doesn't do any arm sites,but he does love the length because he says it doesn't pull.I would do as the above..Try the MM people and the ENDO..I'm sure they would be willing to help you out..
