Its normal (from my experience) for the IV-3000 to fall away at the
perimeter but still works for 2 more days when this happens. Its also
normal to remove it easily. But it's never fell (in my case) by it
self. So I took it us positive that I can remove it so easily. The
procedure I use is to first stick the IV-3000 to the site and then
insert the cannula which sticks on the IV-3000. Using IV-3000 that way
I can keep my sites almost 5 days without redness and spots.

In my case when I bolus it's take about 2 hours for my blood sugar
start felling down. So I never do another correction until 2 hours
pass from the previous bolus.

Of course YMMV.

Hope this help
