I have been given 6 i-port samples to try. I have never used anything like this. Has anyone ever used one? I will just be sampling this because my insurance doesn't cover them. I have priced them and without insurance coverage, 10 ports would cost about $120, which would last a month. Certainly more expensive than syringes.

The port looks like a little nipple and has a needle on the back side of it. You insert it like a syringe and then instead of giving yourself single injections, you insert your syringe in the little opening. It has adhesive that keeps it in place and you can keep it on for 3 days. I am allergic to most adhesives so I might not be able to tolerate it. I will let you know what I think. Thanks for showing an interest. :):)

I have never heard of this. Sounds sort of like the same principle as the access sites for the pump...no?

I am really not familiar with the pump but it is probably the same principle. Cool idea but very expensive!
