Re: [IP] Need your help again



Goodmorning Marion,

I have been on an insulin infusion pump for 16 years now and Please do not
take this wrong but this is very dangerous in not changing the reservoir
when you change your tubing because no matter if there is a big drop coming
out of the reservoir their is still going to be a large air bubble and
believe me this will cause a rise in your blood sugar, so it is a very wise
decision to replace the reservoir and the tubing each time to save you from
the extremely high blood sugar later..

Take care
Samantha
