You should change the site because it is probably bent and you are not getting any insulin. And give yourself a shot for the correction for your blood sugar and continue to check your sugar

Hmm, you might want to try changing it again. Sucks to waste the sites but you need that basal rate from the pump. Make sure you're putting it in a good fatty place. I usually put mine in my stomach or butt haha

I agree with**** It's frustrating but****you will get the hang of it, that is one of the downfalls of the pump. I've learned to keep a close watch on my sugar for the first few hours to make sure it's a good site. I also have the problem of the insulin being less effective after 2-2&1/2 days 😖 it's frustrating
