From Newark, Delaware, USA:

My fourteen year old daughter is scheduled to go on the insulin pump and has been practicing with saline. She is doing fine, except when she does her three mile run daily. She disconnects from the pump and leaves the infusion set in, but the tape peels off after her run from sweating so much. What can she do to prevent this?


See: Products Available to help keep the infusion set on our skin at the Insulin Pumpers web site.
