Re: [IP] Sore / itchy sites

Hi, Miranda:

Many pumpers experience some variation in their BGs when they start out.
You should notice things settle down as you fine tune your basal and bolus

There is some very useful information on preparing infusion sites at this

A couple questions so others might give you some hints:

What type of insulin are you using - Velosulin or Humalog?
What type of tape do you use?
What kind of infusion set are you using?
How do you currently prep your site (other than using the Site Prep)?
Is your skin normally "sensitive" to things like lotions, adhesives, etc.?

I bet you'll get some useful info from the group ;-)
