Disetronic Medical Systems has announced a nationwide recall of their diabetic insulin pump kit, ACCU-CHEK. According to the manufacturer, the ACCU-CHEK Ultraflex Infusion Set has a defect that can cause a leak and not deliver the adequate dosage of insulin to the patient.
Prior to the diabetic insulin pump recall, Disetronic received numerous complaints from diabetic patients indicating that the ACCU-CHEK set's tubing became disconnected during use. Diabetic patients relying on insulin can suffer from hyperglycemia with improper insulin dosages and unbalanced blood sugar.
Symptoms of side effects of hyperglycemia include stomach pain, nausea, blurred vision, excessive thirst or hunger, frequent urination, fatigue, or headache.
Patients using Disetronic's insulin pumps can return the pump for a replacement or an alternate insulin pump.
