    We have been going through so many issues with the quickset that finally our endo has suggested the silhouette. My son is very thin and active but I am worried. Any insights? Thanks.

    My daughter is also very thin. She found the Silhouette extremely painful to insert. We tried the Quickset and Mio but after several kinked cannulas in about 5-6 weeks we decided the Teflon sets were too unreliable for us. We went back to the Sure T and have never had a problem with a set since.

    We have used all three. The Sure-T is your best bet because it has a steel needle instead of the plastic cannula. We have used the quickset and have not had problems as long as you use the insertion device. The Silloute is tricky, pinch the skin when inserting
