For insulin pump users, how often do you usually change your infusion set?

Poll dates: February 17 - 24, 2010
Total Votes: 271

Insulin pump users must change their infusion sets periodically to prevent infection and the build up of scar tissue at the infusion site. Changing your infusion set more often is essential to reduce the risk of scar tissue build up, but it does cost more money.
