From Ardmore, Oklahoma, USA:

I use an insulin pump, and I want to know all the possible areas you can put the infusion set. I have used the abdomen and hips. Is there any place else I can put it?


You can insert the infusion set anywhere you give an insulin injection. So if you can figure out how to arrange the tubing, you can use your arms and buttocks.
