Been on Lantus for 6 months now, and humalog almost a year....one or three injections a day. Blood sugar testing is at least three more like 4 - 5 tests a day....that's a lot of needles and a lot of poking, When I first started testing I used the two middle fingers on my left hand....now after 16 years they are pretty tough with callus'. Okay so went to my thumb....that gets me what I need pretty quick. But I'm not going to rely on this finger for testing for 20 years either. Used my palm when all else fails....but other sites? Where do you draw from?
Then there is the Lantus and humalog. I use my stomach as I was taught, but with l lantus and possibly 4 humalog injections a day.....I do run out of stomach. I have a ring of tough fat around my middle, that will bend the needles when I inject there, never quite sure it gets there. So I have to go higher or lower. My arms aren't long enough to use the back of my arm to reach.....I haven't tried my leg yet, because I seem to remember NOT to inject into your muscle ( or did I dream that UP)
Would love to have in put on where you test and where you inkect your insulin
