It is absorbed in the subcutaneous tissue, metabolized by the skin, and excreted in the urine. Hopefully this fully answers your question. Once satisfied please rate my answer. Thanks.

When insulin is injected it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the skin and is metabolized to active ingredients then used by the body to lower blood sugar and is excreted in the urine.

Sorry. Metabolised to what active ingredients ? Is there a good website to explain it fully ?

What insulin are you asking about because there are more than one type and each pathway for metabolism can be different.
