I was wondering about that too.  The place I get my shots from told me to inject it in the upper thigh muscle and to switch legs every time.  Only thing is, it hurts!  Is the stomach better?  Is there a difference in injecting into a muscle vs. injecting into fat?

I was told that it absorbs better/quicker if it is given from the waist down, which means, either buttocks, upper thigh, or stomach.  For the stomach, 1 or inches on either side of the bellybutton.  It's supposed to not hurt as much in the stomach because you don't have as many nerve endings there.

I take my shots in the stomach.  You don't feel anything at all.  There are no nerve endings there, so you don't really even feel the ***** as you would most injections.  I am happy so far.

There are suggested injection sites. However, the preferred by many, is the abdomen area, because it called "the dead zone" - meaning, you feel it less.
Most patients have never given themselves an injection, or had to receive injections on a daily basis for two months. ( Although the diabetic patients giggle when I say this) But it is scary for them at first, and the abdomen is the easier area for them to inject themselves, until they are more comfortable.

I do recommend that where ever you choose for your injection site, that you have two (or more) as you need to alternate, so that it does not become tender, and prevent a build up from scarring tissue.  This is a standard for any injected medicines.

The lower abdomen, outer thighs, outer-upper arm, and buttocks are the recommended injection sites to chose from. (basically the same as an insulin dependant patient would chose from)
