"Thighs it is. Sight insertion on the upper/inner thigh was relatively painless and seems to be working fine. Zero discomfort during sleep and I quickly forgot it was there."

"Hi Sam, I put mine on the front part of my arm that is close to where your arm joins your armpit. If I put my arm down by my side against my body, it's about 1 1/2 inches to 2 inches from where my arm meets my body, toward the center of my arm…"

"Hi Chris, I saw nobody responded to your questions so thought I'd answer. I use Dexcom and OmniPod. I have used my Dex on my stomach, legs and arms. For me, my arms are the most accurate and comfortable site. I found my abdomen to be the least…"

"I will also be removing my stomach from the Parrformance approved locations sheet, I placed a sensor today on my stomach and thought that I peirced all the way thru my liver. I tell you it hurt. I will try my legs next time."
