I take mines in the thigh and my morning numbers are still above 160 but not over 200. I take farxiga and glimepiride. I should say that I am 6 mos out of chemo and 6wks finshed with radiation... cancer free. Just wondering if I should inject in the stomach area. I have been on it for 2.5 mos and yes the radiation did raise my numbers ... I have experienced none of the mostly reported side effects.
