Lipohypertrophy or Insulin is tough skin bumps or swellings in the skin areas where insulin is often injected by a patient. This occurs because insulin causes fat cells to increase in size, which causes the lump. This especially occurs in bell buttons where diabetic patients usually inject or infuse insulin. Aside from their unpleasant appearance, insulin lumps affect glucose control because the skin with insulin lumps or lipohypertrophy decreases the absorption of insulin in these areas.
