Continuing Pump Issues

I am new here but I feel that being here will help me in so many ways. Right now, I am having issues with my pump. I have been on a OneTouch Ping for 2 1/2 years but, last year when I would rotate my site area, my sugars started to go very high. Still happening. I have discussed with my endocrinologist, Animas Nurse, Nurses at my endo's office and all the suggestions have not worked. The latest suggestion was to change the size of my contact detach needle from 6 inches to 8 inches. I just changed my site a little while ago and my sugar started to go up. I don't know what else to do!!! We are moving to CA so, I may just have to wait until I can find a new Endocrinologist and hope they can help. Any other suggestion. Please????? Thanks.:vs_worry::vs_worry::vs_worry:

I have a different problem with my pump. It seems that on the day that my insulin is running out of insulin and by the end of the day, I probably will be changing out the infusion set for a new one, my BG readings are very high. Since I change sets every 3 days, I can count on higher than usual readings on those days. My endo, my "so-called" Medtronic aide, and my great nurse all think I am nuts. But something certainly changes pretty regularly.
