Re: [IP] Re:Different Infusion site



Yes, there are.  It is highly recommended that you stick to the tummy though.
(absorbtion and all)  In the abdominal area, you can place the set anywhere
from just below the rib cage to just above the pubic area.  A good guide is
two fingerwidths from the belly button extending to the sides.  Almost
anywhere you can pinch an inch.  On the backside, anyplace near the pocket
line.  You don't sit there.  Front of thighs and sides are ok if your pants
aren't too tight.  If you're feeling really adventurous, use the outside of
the bicep.  Don't forget to ROTATE!!!

As I am a new pumper (1 month),  Is there any different areas that you can
use other than your tummy area for the infusion site?
