Maryam Mohammed Abdulla1, Waleed Al Faisal*2, Hamid Y. Hussain2
Proper injection technique is essential for optimal functioning of insulin and other injected medications in diabetes. Injection site rotation is an important component of insulin administration. Dermatological complications at insulin administration sites, like lipohypertrophy, lipoatrophy and erythema, are common problems in patients with type 1 diabetes. These complications can hinder insulin absorption and influence glycemic control. Additionally, they alter the cosmetic appearance of the skin. It is therefore important that injection administration is based on scientific evidence.
