Re: [IP] Changing sites



Jeff,
This is  YMMV thing and you will get alot of different responses.
Personally, if the site is good then why should I change it after 1 or 2
days?  I just disconnect, take the reservoir out of my MM, then add more
insulin too it.  I prime the tubing and reinsert into the same site.  Be
careful to look for air bubbles when doing this.  This is not what MM
recommends...this is what Mel recommends so please use caution :)

Hope this helps,
Mel and pumpy
