Dave replied to MLS223's discussion '3 day Highs' in the group OmniPod Users
"This really sounds like a site going bad. Some tubed pumpers have this problem, and have to change their sets every two days. Generally caused by an inflammatory response to the foreign body. Some people are more sensitive than others."

"I would second what JL_Mom said as that switch has solved my problems,and yes I did experience higher levels on the last day. Probably other things could contribute but that switch took care of me. elsewhere on this site Novolog was referred to as…"

"I see third day highs, as well....not consistantly, but frequently enough to notice. I usually use Humolog but switch off with Apedra occassionally and sometimes I blame the Apedra. Other times, I notice an irritation at the site when I remove the…"

JoRunCO replied to MLS223's discussion '3 day Highs' in the group OmniPod Users
"Yes, the third day can go either way for me. I find I have more chance of running high when I see about 12 units remaining. Blood Glucose is not exorbitantly high, it hovers just high enough to make me question if insulin is old, cannula is bent, or…"

"I have a script for pod changes after 2 days because I have had this problem. I keep an eye on my sugars during the last 24 hours of the pod. If they start to go up and multiple boluses won't bring them down - I should (don't always…"

"No I don`t see a 3 day high when I do get to 3 days of wearing the pod. maybe it has to do with the type of insulin you use."

Kilij replied to MLS223's discussion '3 day Highs' in the group OmniPod Users
"I have not had high blood glucose that corresponds to how long I have been wearing the pod. Nearly all of my elevated readings correspond to various hormonal fluctuations throughout the month."

jbowler replied to MLS223's discussion '3 day Highs' in the group OmniPod Users
"I don't. I've noticed highs after the third day - pod change highs - but only with the old pods. I've never seen any problem with delivery up to the 80hour expiry."

JL_ Mom replied to MLS223's discussion '3 day Highs' in the group OmniPod Users
"I know this is going to sound strange but my daughter used to experience those third day highs when she was on Humalog. Now that she is on Novolog those third day highs have disappeared for her at least."

3 day Highs

Hi,Does anyone experience high blood sugars towards the third day (end)of their pod? Assuming its possible since the insulin might get old, but figured I would ask since this site is so very helpful!!See More
