What’s the problem?
February 25, 2011 – This week, Roche Insulin Delivery Systems announced the recall of its ACCU-CHEK FlexLink Plus infusion set because of the potential for under-delivery of insulin. Insufficient levels of insulin can lead to dangerously elevated blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia) in diabetics.
This recall applies to the ACCU-CHECK FlexLink Plus set that was launched in November 2010, and appears to be due to a kinked cannula when inserting the infusion set. Roche is advising all customers to stop using the infusion set and to contact their physicians or caregivers immediately.
Early signs of hyperglycemia in diabetes include (but are not limited to):
- difficulty concentrating
- blurred vision
- frequent urination
- fatigue (weak, tired feeling)
- weight loss
- blood glucose more than 180 mg/dL
- vaginal & skin infections
- nerve damage
- stomach & intestinal problems
