Please read the insert that comes with the Silhouette. It's on
the back side under "Precautions". It says: "It is generally
advisable to administer a bolus of at least 0.0075cc (for
insulin: approx. 1 unit of U-100) to fill the empty space in the
cannula after the introducer needle is withdrawn". There have
been many complaints of high BGs after a set-change, and this
may be a factor.
