RE: [IP] Re: Help

I never leave my sets in after applying a new one and I never have high
BGs related to the site change.  Another one of those YMMV things.

But then, why isn't this a problem for everyone? (I really am just
curious, not trying to argue.) Shannon has never needed to leave the old
site in afterwards in 4yrs of pumping - her bgs are fine. Anyone have
any theories?

Take care, Kerri - IP Parents-of-Pumpers chat host and mom of Shannon

it!), and her 7 siblings  :-)

The problem is one of mechanics -- relatively simple solution.

When the old site is removed WHILE STILL ACTIVE, the site itself 
still contains insulin. When you remove the set two things happen.

1) body fluid and some insulin may leak out of the wound
2) damage occurs to the tissue in the site wound as you remove the
