Re: [IPk] Sites



Hi Sarah

I have only been using a pump for about 2 weeks now.  I also had a similar
problem.  I would change my site, and then for some reason my sugar readings
would be really high.  After changing the site a couple of times thinking
that I must have done something wrong, I called my doctor and he told me to
change my insulin bottle.  He said that I just might have a bad bottle.  I
took an injection with the new insulin and my sugar reading dropped right
down.  I just changed the set again and everything was fine.

GoodLuck
