Site of Insulin Injection

Insulin has to be injected in the subcutaneous region of the body. This is typically on the thighs, abdomen, buttocks or the arms. One may need assistance while injecting in the arms.

Insulin should not be injected directly into the blood stream.

The rate of absorption of insulin is different from different sites. There is always 25% variation in the rate of absorption in the same person. The best site of insulin injection is the abdomen.
