Re: [IP] Does saline sting?

I occasionally will experience some uncomfortable stinging, but nothing I
can't live with - Humalog and SofSet infusion sets.  When I asked my doc
about this he said that insulin has a very high pH level, and if the
infusion set was too close to a muscle, it might cause some stinging (I was
getting closer to a leaner part of my abdomen on my side - have to aim for
those fatty areas!).
