    Anyone else here using the Cleo 90 infusion set? I am happy with the system, from sharpness of the needle to the plastig thingy but it is quit difficult to remove the inserter and leave to sticker on my skin. Do you recognize this and how do you manage this?

    Hi @Ineke ,

    I'm not a pumper. But I can tag in a few guys that may help? @himtoo @Juicyj @catapillar @Snapsy

    I or one of the other members of the moderator team could move your enquiry to the pump section of the forum for a more productive response to your thread, if you so wish?

    Regards.

    Job done for you @Ineke .

    I'll also tag in @tim2000s & @phdiabetic while I'm here.. They may have knowledge of the Cleo 90.

    Hope this helps?!

    Hi @Ineke ,

    I found this YouTube tutorial regarding the Cleo which may just help you regarding technique with successful adhesion..

    Note the "rolling motion" mentioned in the vid.?

    What you need to do is run your finger around the edge of the cleo so it removes the stick from the edge before you insert it. :)

    I'll have a go at the roll off, they mention. Now I just sit there, wait a while and pull the inserter off.
