Re: [IP] Re: First day highs after a site change



 I do the same with mine, actually a bit more than that. My Silhouette infusion
sites supposedly have a .7 unit prime needed, but I routine use a minimum of
1.2U, and often do 3 or 4 primes to overcome the "transition phase" of site
changes. I do it because it works also.

 Reality is only as good as your own experiences and that reality is often
different from what people tell you it's supposed to be. ;)

I had a similar problem with high blood sugars after a site change.  To 
avoid this I now routinely overprime the cannula of my new set (fixed prime 
in MiniMed terms).  CDEs chide me for this, but I continue to do it because 
it works.
