Look at the dark pink areas on these pictures to find areas of the body
where insulin is injected. Inject insulin into:
Rotate the location of the injection, and slightly change the injection spot each time you inject
insulin. Using the same spot every time can form bumps or pits in the skin. For
example, inject your insulin above your belly button, then the next time use your upper thigh, then the next time below your belly button.
