where people touched by diabetes help each other.

For the people that take insulin. Do you inject slow or fast?

It's better to go slow. I found that if you go too fast the insulin builts up in that spot and creates a little bubble in your skin. I'm pretty sure that's not good WHATSOEVER. Go slow

I tried to switched it around but I always tends to hit something like a nerve feeling and both always makes bumpy feeling. I think I'm gonna keep on injecting slow then. Thanks!

Where do you inject? And remember not to inject in the same spot too much!

My stomach. I tried to change spots but it's still the same. I have too many bruises and bumps. I inject 4 times a day.

I inject about 6. Try giving your shots in the real fatty parts of your body. I keep some fat on my body so I don't hit any muscles when I have to inject and it's more comfortable with the needle.

I just need to remember where I inject last. It's so hard. And I don't like injecting on my arms or legs. So is the bumps means the insulin is stuck there? Would I affect to kick in?

Bloomfield, NM
I honestly don't know what it means when the insulin is stuck there but it still has affect.

Ah ok. Maybe I'll ask My doctor about that. Thanks for your help. I'll try different way tomorrow and see if it changes.

Glad I could help! 👍

I inject Novomix 30 and that is quite rapid - a steady pressure I find is the way forward.
