Not Rotating Injection Sites
It’s easy to become used to injecting a certain spot on your body. However, this can have negative long-term effects. This can cause a condition known as lipohypertrophy. Lipohypertrophy is when fat deposits, scar tissue, and protein build up under the dermal layer, making insulin absorption less effective. You may forget where you injected yourself at lunchtime, but if you’re ever unsure, just move your insulin up or down a few inches. By mixing up your injection sites between your thighs, arms and stomach each day, it will allow your body to break down the build-up and make treatment more effective.
