Thanks for the response. From the start I memorized the stickies so I'm familiar with the reference to the CA study and the Peak/Valley wave of T.
I've been doing the 2 x week IM shots for about 2 months and just not as flexible as I need to be in order to inject without "stirring" the needle within the muscle - you know holding it steady.
My question regarding using the insulin syringes is if the needles is .5" long and I inject at 90* directly into my thigh I'm thinking this is an IM injection. And if not, let say its going into fat - does it matter? I mean, I understand the concept of Sub Q v IM (steadier rate,etc) but I've been OK w/the IM injections - so if I use the insulin syringe and inject this way I'm expecting my labs to be the same. Does this sound right?
I'm just going for what is easier for me to do and give me the right results.
