Good question.  I don't think I have seen a good answer on the list ever. 
The phenomena you describe is common and well documented. When using 
Humalog, it is very common for the site to be corrupted within three 
days. Not many folks get longer than that, sometimes if the insertion is 
done badly or the site is somehow truamatized, it will stop absorbing 
Humalog within hours or just a day.  Do you use a sof-serter?? This helps 
a lot with a clean non-traumatic insertion.
