INFUSION SITE
STICKING PROBLEMS

As we know, infusion sites are “prime real estate” and care is required to maintain a good number of effectively absorbing areas. Absorption of insulin becomes very limited in the presence of swelling due to infection and or scar tissue. People with frequent site issues may be infusing more insulin than they need. Glucose levels may increase initially due to lack of absorption and then as a result of inflammation and eventually, scar tissue.

For those who have been using a pump long term adhesion may be less of an issue but site rotation can become more limited as a result of using these preferred sites. Our aim in this discussion is to share some tips which have helped solve infusion site issues.
