Re: [IP] tight jeans retard insulin release?



I get those highs to every once in a while especially when I put on freshly
washed jeans  and tuck the tubing into them.  I'm guessing the tubing gets a
kink and being inside the shrunken jeans makes it worse, but I always seem
to catch it before my occlusion alarm goes off, or if I don't and do get an
alarm taking the tubing out of my jeans clears the problem.
