What is lipohypertrophy? Lipohypertrophy is when fatty lumps appear on the surface of the skin and is a fairly common side effect of insulin injections. This will usually occur if multiple injections are administered to roughly the same part of the skin over a period of time. When the skin becomes lumpy, it may mean that if insulin is injected into the lumpy area, it won’t be absorbed consistently, which can mean the insulin takes longer to be absorbed, leading to higher than normal blood glucose levels, or can get absorbed too quickly, leading to hypoglycemia.
