I use an insulin pump and have only ever used my abdomen area for infusion sets. I know there are other candidates for insertion sites like the back of arm, thighs, bottocks but these all give me irritation and cause redness so I always have to fall back to the tummy area.
I’ve been a diabetic for 20 years and have been pumping for half of that time. While I rotate my insertion sites, I worry about overuse and scarring underneath the skin over time making injections less effective. How long does it take before scarring happens and can it heal?
I’ve been getting constant insulin flow block errors and worry this is the reason for it.
