I have been on pump therapy for about 12 years now. I have problems with effective pump delivery. I most commonly experience stinging when insulin is being delivered. Most the time I find this is because their is a blockage and insulin is not being delivered properly. I have most of my excess weight around my abdomen.

I have found that you need to stay away from your belly button. Also avoid stretchmarks. Also don't put it in the exact same place. Move it a bit. Hope this helps. Rita
