Re: [IP] Type 1's new name !!

I won't say that, but it doesn't occur 100% of the time.    I feel much better
when I'm treating a low than waiting out a high, so I err on the low side
sometimes.    I usually change my sites out in the morning; a time at which
I'm more insulin resistant than normal, so it tends to balance out.

So priming the canula with 3-4 unites has never made you go low?

Wow, two additional days, that's a bit long for me.  I usually go for about
2-4 hours, but I also prime the new cannula with 3-4 units of insulin to make
up for the lack of insulin saturation in the tissue at the new infusion
site.    You shouldn't have to leave the old site in any longer than it takes
your body to fully use all of the old insulin at the old site.    The Insulin
Duration Setting on your pump should approximate this. 

As always, this  may be a YMMV (your mileage may vary) thing.
