RE: [IPp] Tough one to figure out....

Alida, thanks for the response.  He is 12, so he certainly is going through
some changes.  If it weren't so consistent with respect to the infusion site
changes, I might agree.  However, having it happen every 3 days like
clockwork?  We might try to change his site after 2 days and see if it still
happens.  I've also figured out a way to make sure it isn't the pump.  On
the 2nd or 3rd day, I will change the cartridge but not the site and see if
anything happens.  I doubt the that the pump is at fault, but hey, you never

.   His levels are consistent at all other times for all the days.   If
his site was "going bad" or wasn't absorbing as much, you would expect  a
trend up during the time he has the infusion set in.  I have tracked  this
and graphed it for the last 6 site changes and there is no such  trend.
2.    There wasn't a significant difference in nightly  readings before I
changed the basal rate regardless of the when the site  was changed

My son is going through similar circumstances. Our nighttimes are  never 
consistent, whereas our daytimes are fine.  This has been going on  for a
 months. I have ascribed it to puberty and growth because he is doing all he
supposed to do and there is no consistency to it so there isn't  something 
specific to pin it on.  I could be wrong, but he certainly is  getting much 
bigger.  How old is your son?  Mine is 11.
