I just started the pump also using humulog in it - I noticed something
when my sugars started going up towards the end of the second day - My
pump which I was wearing attached to special bet I purchased was warm
from being closed to my body and covered up - I would almost say it was
hot, I switched sets and don't use the belt anymore unless I wear it
over my clothing since then the pump doesn't feel warm or hot to the
touch...I am wondering now if my own body heat - hot flashed and all
along with my warm winter clothing caused the insulin in the pump to go
bad?? I know we have to protect the pump from freezing temps but maybe
it's placement so close to my bod caused the problem.
