    Hi James - are you sure you are priming all the air out of the reservoir? How are your sites and are they lump free ?

    If this is a recent problem, I would be changing my sites as the current ones may have become lumpy. Even if you can’t feel anything, there could be something which is causing problems.
    There’s many different site options you can try.

    Hi @james555 F I was in your shoes I’d try a different infusion set just to rule this out - see if your nurse has got some sure t’s which are steel tip sets, I found there to be occlusion issues with Teflon sets as well as kinking but never had an issue with sure t’s.
