Use a different site for each injection, at least 1/2 inch (1.25 centimeters) away from the previous injection site but in the same general area (for example, the thigh). Use all available sites in the same general area before switching to a different area (for example, the upper arm).

Inject insulin into:

The abdomen, but at least 2 in. (5.1 cm) inches from the belly button. ...

The top outer area of the thighs. Insulin usually is absorbed more slowly from this site, unless you exercise soon after injecting insulin into your legs.

The upper outer area of the arms.

The buttocks.

You can use insulin pen if so desired.

I am using total 12 points on rotation.In the morning about 2 in from belly button and in the evening on the thighs on the fleshy parts.So,each site is visited once in six days and so far I have not faced any problems.

I suggest you to follow paleo diet that reduce your insulin intake tremendously.
