Infusion Site in Chest

Does anyone have experience using their chest as an infusion site? I injected for 38 years, and never considered injecting in my chest. I had enough real estate in my stomach, legs, arms and butt. But I know some women try this. Also, I've also heard of a male skier trying it, and he's 4% body fat, not fleshy in the chest area.Any experience with this? Any recommendations?See More

Get Your Test On! Where else can you make a donation without taking money out of your pocket?

The 2012 Big Blue Test has started! Between now and the end of the day on November 14th, do the Big Blue Test every day to help us reach our goal of 20,000 entries.

Let your TuD friends, and family/friends/co-workers know about the Big Blue Test. If they don't have diabetes, they can still take the Big Blue Test every day WITHOUT testing their BG.

Every time YOU do the Big Blue Test the program sponsor (Roche Diabetes Care, makers of ACCU-CHEK® diabetes products and services) donates $5 to support organizations that help people with diabetes in need.

If you've never taken the Big Blue Test before, it's really easy. All you have to do is:
Test your blood glucose.
Get active for 14-20 minutes (or whatever you can do).
Test again.
Share the results on BigBlueTest.org
Come back every day and tell others!
(If you don't have diabetes, you can still take the Big Blue Test every day. You just don't need to worry about testing your blood glucose.)

Share your results in our Big Blue Test discussionif you wish.

Thanks :)
