[IP] ultraflex and leg sites?

i've seen stuff on the list about using leg sites with things like quicksets and whatnot, what
about a plastic cannula with a 90 degree insertion angle like ultraflex? i use the
eight-millimeter length and am thinking of trying a site on my leg, but am wondering whether that
is too long. i don't have as much fat there as i do on the usual sites, and i walk a LOT (from
home to class to dining halls and everywhere else, totals at least a mile and a half a day just
doing everyday stuff); so will use of leg muscles affect insulin absorption at all? i'd love to
know what your experiences have been.
