The change in your site may have been to slow down the absorption of the insulin. You most likely have a bigger fat layer on your tummy than on your thigh, and unless you are doing daily crunches, the muscles of your stomach area get less of a workout than your legs. When you use muscles there is more circulation to the area, including the fat layer, hence quicker absorption of the insulin injected.
I understand you have had a lot thrown at you all at one time and I want you to know that we will stand with you and help you every step of the way. We have a variety of diabetics here who are using many different kinds of meds and food programs to keep their numbers in line.
I want to offer you an idea that may help you. I have no insurance and got to the point where I could no longer afford my Avandia. (Lucky me! Now they find it causes heart attacks!) I called my doc and told her that I was removing all white food except for cauliflower from my diet and continuing on with my metformin and lantus. My numbers are excellent and I've lost 29 lbs. since mid April. You may want to consider a food plan that is similar. I've got to go deliver a wedding cake but we can chat more later. Welcome to the friendliest diabetes help spot in the world!
