Blood Tests and Insulin Injections

Question from a Certified Diabetes Educator in Lumberton, North Carolina, USA:

We have a patient who has severe psoriasis, has had diabetes less than a year and who is just starting on insulin. Does this affect where he can give his injections?

Answer:

I would avoid the patched of severe psoriasis when giving an injection.
