Re: [IP] worn out site selections


I overused my abdomen while injecting and had to use a different area of my
abdomen (higher up) because I had damaged the tissue and the insulin wasn't
as effective.  I changed my injection sites a year ago, started pumping in
February and now can use my lower abdomen area again.  I checked with my
endo and she thought it was fine.  I don't notice any problems with
absorption either.  I have had diabetes for 31 years and probably had used
my abdomen for injections for about 15 years.  Before going on my pump I was
taking 5 shots a day.  Check with your Doctor.  Hope this helps.
