Hey everyone, I hope you all are doing ok. It has been a while since I have been here.
I've been having some insulin pump problems. I am going on my 5th years post kidney transplant along with having lupus Sle over 15 years and diabetes type1 over 30 years.
I was told I needed to be on a insulin pump and over a year I have been through 2 different brands of pumps and I keep getting blockage in the pump tubing. We have change to 3 different types of tubing and even the insulin. I even had them put it on for me to see if it is something I was doing wrong.
We are running out of ideas. The insulin pen kick the sugar to0 low and then when the insulin is out of my system in 5 hours it goes sky high.
I was wandering if anyone with lupus has been on a insulin pump and if they had any problems like this.
If I cannot keep my sugar level regulated then I will lose the kidney, be back on dialysis and then the lupus will start to act up again. Running out of ideas any suggestions Please?

lildeb,

I must say that you have me a bit perplexed. As a nurse, I do not think that I have ever heard of of a pump becming blocked. Are you on any blood thinners? What does your doc think? Have you spoken to the manufacturer of the pump and tubing? Again I am in utter amazement. At least it sounds like your immune system is working.
