My son's pump site fails after one day, Can switching from Humalog to Apidra help?

Does anyone have their small child on Apidra? I heard it can extend the number of days your site works for.

Any other tips?

It has been 5 months since starting the pump and it seems to really matter where I stick his site in. Bottom won't absorb any more insulin, back of the leg is almost used up . Going to the front of the leg now.

I am tired.

Well, at least you're figuring our the different Basal rates for the two different days. I hope you have some more success with the front of the leg, and the back of the arms.

If you don't have any Inset 30's to try, just call Animas and they'll happily send a sample. :)
Hi there,
Our tiny girl has been using novorapid in her pump since she was 2, she is now six. Don't know if Apidra is more effective or not. We also use the angled infusion sets 13 mm.
Cheers!
