    ATTN: Minimed Quickset Users

    Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users. If you're a MM Pump User PLEASE watch out for this!!!

    I just recieved notice that the tubing comes out where the tubing meets the reservoir leaving users with hyperglycemia. This can lead to DKA if it goes unnoticed.

    This is the reference # MMT-399 and LOT # 9201813

    If you have these Quickset call Metronics and they will replace them all.

    Yeah, ANOTHER! I just hope others with these infusion sets catch the problem without going into DKA.

    Last time there was a recall I had to beg my CDE for a few lines to get me through till I got my replacements.

    I did want to add that some get their supplies from distributers (I use a company partnered with my heath insurance) and they are the ones that have to give the replacements. If you get your lines from a pharmacy, go to them first and see if they are the ones sending out the good ones. If not, then they will have all the info on who to call.

    (and funny thing, I just got that recall notice at my job, and a warning that call volume may increase tonight and tomorrow)

    do you have a link or reference email? usually the company sends out a letter. the last recall I can find on their website was from July 2009

    I would suspect most of these sets would be expired by now anyhow
