      Has anyone else come across this? On a recent visit to my wonderful (and I mean wonderful – Royal Liverpool Diabetes Unit – is fanbloomintastic) they identified due to large angry red lumps in my infusion sites, coupled with a burning sensation when infusing (a bit like a Synacthen test – eugh). They have switched me to Humalog, with almost saintly results and the disappearance of angry lumps… whoop. (Sadly I have now angered the Diabetic Gods in some way). However, I just wondered if anyone has had a similar experience????

      Hi Claire

      Occasional burning sensation as insulin goes in but no lumps. However, years ago the old cow insulin would leave hollows on my legs after injecting in them over a period of time. Changing to Pig was better for me.

      Its amazing how insulin has changed over the years though. When I first became diabetic I was put onto a mixture of 30/70 strengths which depending upon the dose had to be calculated using the 4 x table (thankfully my dad was good at maths)

      All insulins did this to me when I first started insulin 42 years ago, until they tried lente. I was diagnosed as allergic to them, and have been allergic to ;
