    Three days plus with Novolog with any set (steel or Teflon), two plus days Humolog or Apidra with any set. It may be my own physical reaction to the insulins, I know with Humolog the insulin clogged in my sets after two days and with Apidra it stops working as well, why?? I do not know. Novolog was the most stable and lasted the longest. I personally think it was a combination of the insulin clogging and my bodies own rejection reaction to the various insulins that caused the variability in how long I could use a set.ali

    We use 6mm Mio's or Quicksets and Humalog. We also use Skin-tac. We can consistently get 2.5 days. After that...either the set starts peeling off and/or his numbers start creeping up.

    We go 3 days using Novolog and Sure-T's. I think the infusion set and the insulin have a huge affect on how long a site will last. When we used silouettes with humalog they would only last 2 days. We switched to Novolog which worked OK most of the time for 3 days but then we switched to Sure-T's & we can definitely get 3 days.

    We go 3 days and use Novolog with Silhouettes. When we forget and go 4 days, I'd say it's fine about 70% of the time, and about 30% of the time we see highs.
