I live in Phoenix, and found the same thing. A 2-day refill schedule works
pretty well. I only change the set every 4 days, however.
What about humidity? Phoenix is hot, but not humid. I wonder if heat and
humidity combined might make a difference. Since the humidity makes it feel
much hotter, does it make the Humalog hotter, too?
