Re: [IP] Bad sites -- how common are they?

<< Question: Does everybody who uses a pump have bad sites
 from time to time? >>
My teenage son has been pumping for 8 months and has had 3 bad sites.  One 
went bad from being accidentally bumped in the abdomen and the other two just 
didn't work after changing sites.  He would run in the high 200s and wouldn't 
come down with the correction.  Guess that is why they say not to change at 
night.  He always checks his sugar 3 hours after a site change to make sure 
it's working.
