"I like the short ones for my stomach and flanks as the long ones were painful. But for the butt cheeks they are causing swelling and lumps due to not going in far enough it seems. I see my DSN (diabetic specialist nurse who handles things like this)…"

"I put my CGM on my butt cheeck. This creates less scar tissue on my stomache. I just tried the short cannula that has a metal needle that stays in in the epidermis. I really liked it. The diabetic care coordinator I saw suggested I try different…"

Sites other than stomach?

Can anyone suggest some new ares for the infusion sets? I need somewhere other than the stomach. My issue is that when I did needles I thought the thigh hurt terribly and I am afraid to do the infusion there. I need some ideas and advice. Even if you use the thigh can you let me know if you think it is painful and where on the thigh is the least painful. Thank YouSee More
