Blood Tests and Insulin Injections

Question from United States:

I've been taking insulin shots daily and have been getting air bubbles under my skin. There has been a time or two where there was a little bit of air left in the syringe. Is that bad? Is there anyway of making the bubbles go away?


It sounds like there is a problem with your technique. Can you have a health care professional observe how you draw up the insulin? You might also want to watch Insulin Injection Demonstrations on the BD web site.
