Injection / Infusion Site Rotation

Changing the places on the body where insulin is injected. This applies to either syringe injections or insulin pump infusion sets. Rotation prevents the formation of lipodystrophies (defects in the breaking down or building up of fat below the surface of the skin), which can result in lumps or small dents in the skin surface.
