Hello,I ride my mountain bike a lot and wear the tight black rubbery spandex bicycle shorts while ridding. Naturally I can't decloth myself and I usually inject in the butt area at home. Would it be ok and can a syringe needle penetrate through my tight black spandex bicycle with no problem in the butt area for insulin injection.If so what gague needle would be recommended?? Thanks.
NO! You dont want to do this because you can infect your injection site with bacteria from your bike shorts! You can use the abdomen, thigh, or the back of the arm as areas to inject insulin. Roll down the waistband, clean the skin with alcohol and inject into the abdominal subcutaneous tissue.
