Re: [IP] Highs after site change



Hey,
Thank you for this question. This might be a difficulty for some people and one must be careful. One only has visual observations of a clear liquid that stops coming out. In some cases I have seen non clear liquids coming out which I think is body fluids.

With the tecnique of leaving the old site in, how does determine how long to leave the old site in since there is a lot of insulin available for adsorption. Ideally one can put too much insulin from that source and see a low, I think.
Thanks again for your question.
Eddie
