[IP] Big differences in sites?


I have had the same problem when I use the thigh as a site  fir my 
Quick-sets. I have the best  luck
with sticking to  the abdomen area. I recently went through the thigh sight
frustration  again while I gave my abdomen a semi annual rest. There are a 
few areas in  the thigh
that were good but many attempts caused high BG's in the  275-320 range.

I have been on the pump since 1981 and have always had good luck with  my
abdomen sites.
