Places on the body where people can inject insulin most easily. These are just above and below the waist, except the area right around the navel (a 2-inch circle) and the upper area of the buttock, just behind the hip bone. The front of the thigh, midway to the outer side, 4 inches below the top of the thigh to 4 inches above the knee can be used for night-time injection. These areas can vary with the size of the person.
