Locations for inserting your sensor image

Choose a location for inserting your sensor. Shown here are the best body areas (shaded) for sensor insertion:

Note: Clinical trials of sensor accuracy have been based on sensors inserted in the belly area. Sensor performance may differ when other insertion sites are used.

Avoid inserting the sensor:

  • Into the 2-inch (5.0 cm) area around your belly button
  • Where your body naturally bends a great deal
  • In areas where clothing might cause irritation (for example your beltline)
  • Where you have scarred or hardened tissue or stretch marks

For Enlite sensor, your sensor should be at least:

  • 2 inches (5.0cm) away from your navel
  • 1 inch away from your insulin pump infusion site
  • 1 inch away from any other insulin needle injection site (syringe, pen)
