Diabetes Essentials : Check Regularly for Lumpy Injection Sites
17 May 2021
Just a reminder; it’s important to Check Regularly for Lumpy Injection Sites.
These lumpy areas are called lipos and they are lumpy, fatty areas which can develop under the skin where people inject insulin. These can be subtle rises and dips on the skin and can sometimes be mistaken for muscle growth. This is why checking injection areas regularly and rotating injection sites will help avoid these developing.
