Re: [IP] "Site degradation"

> What is site degradation?  
The infusion site no longer properly absorbs insulin. 

> What does it look like?
Doesn't usually look any different

> Where does it occur?
Where ever you put the infusion set

> What is the effect?
Unexplained high bg's that do not respond to high bg bolus or respond 
only after extreme amounts of insulin -- much more than expected 
followed by bg's going high again.

> What is the solution?
Change the infusion set/site. Sometimes mixing Humalog with Velosulin 
will eliminate the site corruption problem for most people.
