Re: [IP] Set Changes and Highs


  Are you leaving the old site in for a few hours after you have changed 
sites?  The reason a lot of us (not all) leave the old site in for a few 
hours is because there will be a pool of insulin at that site and if you pull 
out the old site right away that insulin will ooze out through the hole left 
by the canula.  That insulin needs to be allowed to be absorbed because it is 
part of your basal insulin (or bolus if you recently bolused).  So yes, your 
BGs will rise if this pool is let out too early!  Try leaving the old site in 
for a few hours.
