Brian (bsc) replied to Edgar's discussion 'Scar tissue shot'
"I don't really have a good explanation for you. It is complicated. Perhaps a good way of think about it is that insulin breaks down over time, so if it is delayed and impeded in getting absorbed, it will end up having less of an effect."

Elizabeth replied to Edgar's discussion 'Scar tissue shot'
"You pretty much nailed it, Edgar. Scar tissue prevents the insulin from diffusing under the skin so it does not get where it needs to go. That's a big reason to rotate sites and avoid scar tissue whenever you can."
