Re: [IP] Two sites are better than one?

 If you think about how the pump and tubing work, you prime the tubing and then
prime the cannula now its all full so you bolus 1U and 1U in pushed in it works
this way until you change out your set. the insulin in the cannula is not
supposed to go into your body its there so that when you bolus(or your basal)
will go into your body and the cannula will be full for the next time.

 Leaving the site in won't make the insulin in the cannula go in, it just allows
your body to better absorb the insulin already inected.
