Brief Answer:
What's the name of your insulin?

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through your question.

I need to know the type of your insulin or the name of your insulin.

If you take a regular(short acting insulin ) you should injecte it subcutaneously 15
to 20 minutes before a meal.

If you have a rapid-acting human insulin analog ,you should take it within fifteen minutes before a meal or immediately after a meal by injection into the subcutaneous tissue of the abdominal wall, thigh, upper arm, or buttocks.

Hope this information is helpful.
Take care

i am 35 years old, 5ft 7 inches, and weigh 69 kilos. I am slim, but have a tyre in the belly which is a combination of subcutaneous and visceral fat. i wish to know if there is any way to remove visceral fat. I am aware that liposuction removes subcutaneous fat, but my pot belly is more because of visceral fat.

My two year old son received a third degree burn on his index finger. A piece of melted plastic stuck to the top of his finger from the fingernail to the first joint, and covered the finger from side to side. It has since continued to reveal it s severity, as the subcutaneous layer turned white and has stopped leaking plasma. My question is, could he lose the function of his cuticle, and what kind of procedure can we expect at the E.R.
