Call it what it is, my muffin top is bigger than it should be (on my list of goals). Pinch more than an couple of inches.
Anyway my doctor gave me the BD short pen needles - certainly sounded better. These work great on my legs, I do not have extra fat there.
Been reading the THINK LIKE A PANCREAS and on page 57 it says. If you are very lean, choose a short pen needle (5-8mm). If you have adequate body fat, choose a longer needle (10-12mm). … If you are overweight, “short” (5-8mm) needles may not inject the insulin deep enough to achieve proper absorption.
I just purchased an extra box of needle tips - original 12.7mm for use with my abdomen. Luckly the cap tape is hot pink. While the others are blue so I can differentiate between the 2.
Have you tried this - does it work?
