RE: [IP] Belly Basals vs "Butt" basals???



I haven't used my backside yet, but my CDE told me that the absorption is
different in different parts of your body.  She said the stomach is the most
consistant and absorbant, then legs and arms and then butt.  I don't know
how much of a difference it really is and it may very per person.

Subject: [IP] Belly Basals vs "Butt" basals???


Greetings all:
    How's that for a "catchy" subject line???? Melissa actually ASKED me to 
pose a question to you experts: Has anyone noticed a distinct difference in 
how well your basals seem to work depending on whether or not you've
inserted 
in the "front or back" of the body??? I've been nagging her to re-do her 
basal fasts since she returned to school, but she switched to her stomach 
again & suddenly her bgs are fine again???? Coincidence???? Full moon? 
Glucose Gremlins???

Regards, Renee ( who feels vindicated that all my hours spent reading every 
IP post really have "gotten through" to my 17 yr old pumper! LOL)
