From Singapore:

I am 14 years old with Type 1 diabetes and I was just wondering where glucagon should be injected. My mom said that it can be only injected in the butt. Is this true?


It can be injected into any decent muscle mass: e.g., the upper arm or thigh (but the upper, outer buttock area is best).
