Re: [IP] Re: Length of set


I also get at least 6 days and have been doing it for at least 6 years.  I
use Sof-sets and Humulin R.  Whether or not you can do it depends on how it
goes for you.  If you get no infection and your blood sugars stay stable,
you may be able to get more time out of your site.  Just be careful trying
it and watch your blood sugars.
