Re: [IP] What do you do when there is not enough insulin to fill the reservoir?

 i use it to the last drop! sometimes there is just enough to fill my tubing and
i'll use that as well. if your worried about missing old with new, then i would
run the res on the old until its gone, then refill that res with the new stuff
and run the rest of the time you'd normally run your site. But thats me and not
for all

Hi All,

What do you do when there is not enough insulin to fill the reservoir 
but you feel that it is too much to throw away?

I was thinking about this and figured that the next time it happens, 
I would just start a new insulin vial, add in some air using a 
syringe and then finish the job.
That way I would be sucking the old one dry and not feel like I am wasting it.
Do any of you do something like this, or do you just throw it away?

Just curious.
