Re: [IP] Re: Bad site?

It may be that there was nothing wrong with your site ... since your Bolus
doses were effective.  However, "the game plan" is to make sure that you can
logically reduce the possible reasons for the high, and deal with it
effectively.  So 3 unexplained highs, change your site to start with.  If
your BGs are still up after the site change, continue assessing other
possibilities. High BGs may well have been illness / stress in your case,
but try to "rule out" the most likely possibilities first.  Despite feeling
OK at 14 (252), I'm sure you feel even better at 5 (90) or 6 (108).
