I wear it exclusively on the backs of my arms. On my upper abdomen, it tends to itch and I don't like the way it lays there when I'm driving (I guess I sit differently while driving). I don't like infusing into my upper abdomen either - I think my underbelly has much more sensitive skin. (*scratches furiously at the tape near her pod there*) I also think that I have such history with scar tissue in much of my abdomen that the arms are prime real estate.
But I get great readings on the arms, rarely dislodge it, and don't seem to have any problems inserting it myself (which is one complaint I hear people give about arms). Most of the time, I can't even tell which arm I'm wearing it on and most of my shirt sleeves cover the transmitter.
Hi Mike. The shots have had a really bad effect on my blood sugars. I have been running in the the high 300's and 400's range. I spoke with my MiniMed Rep. today and she said that it is not uncommon after cortisone shots. Did your thumb get better after the shot? And did the Dr. ever give you a reason as to how you got a trigger thumb in the first place?
