Re: [IPk] Occlusion Warnings

Hi Julian
I would guess that the reason it happens at night is because there's a long
period where you're not bolusing, so there's never much insulin going in at
a time (which can sometimes clear occlusions).
Have you also tried changing the reservoir?
I had the same problem once and found I was using out-of-date reservoirs and
clearly they were sticking, thus causing occlusions.
Just a thought
