I have tried this and haven't really noticed any great difference - and the 
"oops" is - I forgot about the previous site - was going out to dinner - 
looked down and there was my tubing dangling in the wind on the front of my 
skirt - no wonder the valet have me such a wierd look (and here I thought it 
was cuz he doesn't see that many cute chicks driving pickups....)

So as always - check and double check - I do usualy give a .5 - 1 unit bolus 
BEFORE I disconnect old site - so that I've "pushed" some insulin - then I 
also do the same for the new.
