Default where to give yourself injections

So I am on the lantus solar star pen it's the same as a regular needle and insulin to me, just all in one device. So I mostly give my shots in my arms the upper back fatty part, but my doctor said that she never heard of doing ur there, but to do it In my butt, thighs or tummy. Am I wrong for doing it in my arms? Just wanting to know where everyone else does this.

I was told by a nurse that the stomach is the best part because its closer to the pancreas.

You can have injections on your upper arm, thigh and tummy subcutaneous.

You can inject in your arms but injecting into your tummy is better because the insulin is absorbed quicker and better
