Changing the places on the body where a person injects insulin. Changing the injection site keeps lumps or small dents (called lipodystrephies) from forming in the skin. People should, however, try to use the same body area for injections that are given at the same time each day; for example, always using the stomach for the morning injection or an arm for the evening injection. Using the same body area for these routine injections lessens the possibility of changes in the timing and action of insulin.
