Try leaving the old set in for at least 2 hours if you use Humalog or 
4 hours if regular or Velosulin. Many times insulin leaks out of the 
wound when the old site is removed immediately after inserting the 
new one. This may be causing your high. Visualize just how small an 
amount a couple of units of insulin is. Take a look at the droplet 
size next time you do a 5 unit prime when starting a new infusion
