Re: [IP] Using New Infusion Sets, Need Advice...



I find the best place to use the sils is in my hips/butt area.  i never feel
it when i insert it there.  Also another thing i do to help so i don't feel
the pinch when the needle goes in is i pinch the area i am going to put the
site in.  Hope this helps.  I insert manually
