Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

The Accu-Chek infusion sets offer a Luer-lock connection. It can be connected to all Accu-Chek Insulin Pumps.

The disconnectable Accu-Chek infusion sets allow you the freedom to disconnect from your insulin pump altogether for the duration of your activity. Talk to your healthcare professional about time off the insulin pump for sports or a day at the beach.

Pain at the infusion site may be a sign that you are using a set which does not penetrate at the right depth for you (this can especially affect children or very lean users).  For 90° insertion sets, talk to your healthcare professional about the possibility of switching to a different cannula length.

In order to help keep sites free of infection, we recommend that sites be changed at least every 2 days (48 hours) for steel needle sets and every 3 days (72 hours) for soft cannula sets. It is important to always check your blood glucose level 1-3 hours after inserting a new set, to make sure that it's functioning properly. Talk to your healthcare professional about how often should you change your infusion set.

Using hypoallergenic materials is a high priority for Accu-Chek. Our infusion sets are latex- and PVC-free, and glues and solvents are used as little as possible. The adhesive tape is also specially designed to allow the skin underneath it to breathe. However, allergic reactions can never fully be ruled out. Sometimes they develop suddenly, even if you have used the same product for years. If an allergic reaction should occur, ask your healthcare professional about products that can help you continue a comfortable therapy.
