Infusion and sensor sites should be rotated each time you change the infusion set or glucose sensor. This keeps the tissue healthy and allows previous sites to completely heal before reusing them.
Change every 2 to 3 days
|Change your set||Change your infusion set every 2 to 3 days to help prevent infection.*|
|Change your reservoir||Change your reservoir as indicated by your insulin manufacturer.|
TIP: Only fill your reservoir with the insulin you need for 3 days or as prescribed by your doctor.
|Rotate your site||Rotate your infusion site every time you change your infusion set and reservoir.|
Remember, controlling your glucose levels becomes more difficult over time when you infuse insulin in the same area.
|Check your blood glucose (BG)||Check your BG 2 to 3 hours after changing your infusion set. This is the only way to confirm your infusion set is properly inserted and that you are receiving insulin.|
