Abstract: 

The recently published paper by Al Ajlouni et al. (1) describes the rate of lipodystrophy (LD) in a series of 1090 type 2 diabetes (T2DM) patients. LD has been known for decades, and a large body of evidence supports its relationship with poor metabolic control. Nevertheless, LD is often overlooked by teams involved in insulin treatment of people with diabetes mellitus (DM). In their paper, Al Ajlouni et al. (1) confirm a prevalence of 37.3% and a significant association between LD and a series of parameters including female sex, low cultural level, high BMI, long duration of both disease and insulin treatment, use of longest needles, and especially a lack of injection site rotation.
