The self-interaction of a quantum dot tunnel with Coulomb interaction coupled to two leads is investigated. We show that actually in the case of quantum dots the variations of the self-energy functions can be strong, and this can have a significant effect on the values of the tunneling-induced shifts of energy levels of quantum dots, that cannot be obtained in the standard way.
