I Sport an I-Port

Things are continuing to improve on the insulin front. I had a follow-up with both the dietitian and PA last Wednesday, and left with two prizes: an A1C of 5.8 (I was expecting higher) and an I-Port.

I-Port

For those of you not familiar, the I-Port is a neat-o insulin delivery device that gives you one place to inject into for 72 hours, after which it is disposed of and a new one is installed. You inject into it rather than your skin, so there is no pain involved other than the normal sting associated with the insulin hitting your tissue.

I’m on my fourth day and second I-Port, and the novelty of feeling a bit bionic has not yet begun to wear off. I adore not having to hunt for injection sites, endure bruises, and remember to rotate. It’s too soon to say whether its having any affect on my BG control, but expect a full review and more photos after I’ve spent a bit more time with my new, button-esque friend.
