These pictures show the areas of the body where insulin can be
injected. You can give yourself a shot in:
Rotate your injection locations, and at each location slightly change the injection spot each time you inject insulin. For example, inject your insulin in your left upper arm, then the next time in your upper thigh, then the next time in your left upper arm again but slightly lower than before.
Avoid injecting in the exact same spot.
