Got my first Ping and Dex last week. Am very excited. Am reading through Dex literature now, and plan to start it in a couple of days. My first pump training is end of next week.
So one of the things I’ve been thinking about is site rotation. I developed a great system for my MDI, but that won’t necessarily translate to using a pump and sensor.
I realize everyone has their own systems, but would like to hear yours.
• What routine do you follow for rotating pump and sensor sites?
• Do you always place both on the same side of your body?
• Dex literature says it must be in the abdomen. Do you ever use hips or somewhere else?
• And finally, does anyone know how long you have to wait before you can return to the same site?
Thanks for your help! Much appreciated.
