Hi Kathy,

What you describe is something to be alarmed about. Please see the 
article about Lipoatrophy on the web site, last link at:


If your endo is not familiar with the problem, contact Dr. Bill 
Tamborlane at Yale

and get a referral to someone that can assist you 
with solving the problem. It might be as simple as switching to 
another insulin or much more difficult.
