Re: [IP] changing site

Gene asks about changing tubing/insulin at site change........

   Gene, my son Joshua changes sites on sunday AM and wednesday PM and his 
cartridge of insulin last 7-9 days so that is when that gets changes, along 
with the tubing.  Don't waste the tubing or the insulin and just disconnect 
insert and reconnect to the new site.  Don't forget to leave your old site in 
for a few hours to allow the little pool of insulin to be absorbed.  If not 
you may experience a significant high BG after a site change.  Or you can 
just bolus a few units into the new site if you want to take out the old one 
right away.

Good luck!
