RE: [IP] Leaving site in for four days



I think this really comes down to YMMV.  I personally know people who leave
their sites in for 6 days.  For me, starting on the 4th day, I noticed
dramatically decreased insulin effectiveness.  The longer you leave it in
the more of a chance of an occlusion or infection.  If your daughter isn't
going to camp right away, I would try it out before she goes to see how it
works.

Subject: [IP] Leaving site in for four days


Have any of you left your sites in for more than three days???
We were taught to change every three days; my daughter is going to camp
for four days and I was wondering if we should chance it and leave it
for the four instead of changing it there.  

Experience from anyone???
