Infusion Set Insertion Locations

Note: Work with your healthcare professional to determine the sites that will work best for you.

Infusion Set Insertion Site Guidelines

Avoid inserting the infusion set:

  • Into the 2-inch (5.0 cm) area around your belly button
  • Where your body naturally bends a great deal
  • In areas where clothing might cause irritation (for example your beltline)
  • Where you have scarred or hardened tissue or stretch marks

Your infusion sites should be at least:

  • 2 inches (5.0 cm) away from your sensor site
  • 2 inches (5.0 cm) away from your belly button
  • 3 inches (7.5 cm) away from the previous site

Be sure to rotate your sites.
