Depending on the size of your cannula you should fill to .3 for the short and .5 for the longer cannula.

Did he go into your pump to set it? I don't know why he would set It to 5. Makes no sense to me.

My fill amount was 0.5 for over seven years. However, I did experience a number of lhighs following reservoir changes. My belief is that the highs resulted from a few tiny bubbles remaining in the top of the reservoir or in the tube. Accordingly, I just increased my fill rate to o.6. If my fill amount was 5, I am sure I would be low for an hour or two.

 

Are you sure you were set at 5 and not 0.5 ?
