[IP] Infusion site "fat" deposits ?

How does one minimize the buildup of the "fat" nodules at the infusion
set sites? Short of changing locations more often and/or simply keeping
away from that portion of the stomach for quite some time. How long does
it take for the nodules to go away (if they ever do)?

Is insulin absorption at or near such nodules affected? In other words
does it take more insullin or take longer to get the same response from
such a site as compared to a site with NO such nodule?

Do such nodules appear quicker or more frequently depending upon type of
insulin? Humalog or Novolog for instance?
