Try It!


I noticed the other day... that I'm getting the lumps. You know, those nasty little bumps on your stomach that form when you've been injecting or pumping your poor tummy for like....oh... almost 20 years.
I FINALLY decided to be brave and use my upper-outer thigh as an infusion site for my insulin pump. I am LOVING having a pump free tummy for the first time in 9 years!! Man, it needs a break. So far I have noticed that my insulin absorption is a little more sensitive (which is good) I believe due to the fact that there is no scar tissue in my legs.... and a lot less fat too. haha. ( I have tiny chicken legs) I first saw that you could even DO this on Six Until Me's (Kerri) blog. I'll let you know how it all turns out!

My best friend started putting her site on her upper arm because her tummy needed a break, and she loves it there!

Windy, how's this working for you? I've been debating whether or not to try it. I have an infection on my left side right now, so this might be something I consider for my next infusion.
