I most likely be on Lovenox (injections) which is a blood thinner like Heparin not Coumadin. I am one and million that is allergic to Coumadin. I am planning on discussing going on to the insulin pump with my endocrinologist. I am already on a multiple inject plan and a type 2 who as adrenal insufficiency which requires daily oral steroids. I have fun with blood sugars due to this combination of conditions.
Does anyone have experience with placement of pump to where my injections of Lovenox are? I do 2 shots of Lovenox in my stomach daily. Lovenox not sure why has to be done in my stomach so I do use my legs for at least my Levemir and one or two of the novo log shots when possible. I can't do my arm yet, still learning how to do that.
I was doing a different sub q medication therapy and they didn't want that medication given near where I do my Lovenox shots which is why I am asking. I know that I can have the insulin needle in my legs if needed. Any information is helpful to me at this point. Before I start this journey and being I am the only patient my doctors either hematologist or endocrinologist has who have my collection of medication condition I have be proactive.
