Good evening all,

I am hoping to get some advice. I have a insulin pump and the infusion sets I wear around my abdomen. I have just joined a gym again after time out because of my diabetes but I am nervous about doing abdo exercises worried the canula will kink and then cause me to go high!

Has anyone found this or has it been fine? Any information and advance is welcome!

Take care

Well, I wont say it cant happen, because anything can happen, but I will say it hasnt happened to me yet. I have never had any problem with my pump at the gym.

Oh lovely thank u I am going to try and site it more round the back of my hips but I am a bit of a worrier about it! It is great being able to reduce ur pump while exercising. Even though blood testing every 15 mins is annoying!

I usually set a temp lower basal rate for a couple of hours after I finish. That works for me
