Re: [IP] Sof-set Micro Lows



Just the opposite for me.  Put in my first Micro on Tuesday.  Tested after
lunch, was 118.  Didn't eat any snack, did my pre dinner test, BG was 384!
Immediately took a shot of Humalog, after 30 minutes, was 259, after an hour
was 205, after 1 1/2 hours was 207 ?  after 2 hours was 108.  Changed site
after getting BG into normal range, had a crimp in the canula, but insulin
still came out when I did a test prime, never got a no delivery alarm,  Site
had been in for exactly 2 days, to the HOUR!  Will be watching this new site
closely,  if these things are only gonna hold up for 2 days, I'll go back to
the longer ones, I can get 4-5 days out of them!
