Question from Battle Creek, Michigan, USA:
We were having problems with the infusion set clogging and recently switched insulin brands in our daughter’s insulin pump. This has helped to solve this problem, and we have been usually getting three good days of control with each infusion set. If the control is good and the site looks good, can you go any longer than the recommended three days for the site?
It is recommended to change the pump site every three days to prevent infections at the catheter insertion point.
