    I have recently been changed to ypsopump from animas and now use pre-filled pump cartridges. I often have more than 50% of the insulin left when I change my set. My question is can I keep using the same cartridge just changing the infusion cannula? It seems so wasteful to throw it away.

    TIA

    The cartridge must be changed every 3 days regardless of amount left.
