Diabetes Essentials : Check Regularly for Lumpy Injection Sites
18 Mar 2022
Just a reminder that 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 by pen or through a cannula. 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.
These micro-learning resources have been co-created with, and illustrated by young people with type 1 diabetes to support good care.
