Enjoy Simple One-Handed Operation
If you're looking for an insulin delivery device that is small, portable, and easy to use, our selection of insulin needle pens at ADW Diabetes is just what you need. Our insulin pens are discreet and offer patients with diabetes the convenience of a simple, one-handed operation. Our diabetic pens are preloaded with a disposable needle cartridge, can be used with any type of insulin on a wider range of areas of the body, and work well for people of all ages. Pens offer more accuracy than insulin syringes and provide a consistent insulin dose each time. They are also less painful than other types of insulin delivery devices, such as insulin pump catheters.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are insulin syringes different from insulin pens?
An insulin syringe is what most people think of when they think of a "needle". It is a single-dose needle that has pre-mixed insulin medication or you mix it yourself before using it.
An insulin pen is a pre-mixed insulin solution that contains several doses. Before using, set your dosage amount and screw on a needle tip.
How big are insulin pen needles?
The size of diabetic pens varies; the most common are 4mm and 8mm, but insulin pens also come in 5mm, 6mm, 10mm, and 12mm sizes. The needle length (size) is smaller because a person's fat layer is the target, not their muscle layer.
Needle gauges range from 29 to 33. The higher the gauge, the thinner the needle. The thickness of the gauge you need will be determined by the dosage amount and frequency of units you must take.
Are diabetic pens all I need to manage my diabetes?
No. When you use an insulin needle pen, you will also need a way to monitor your blood sugar. The reason you must monitor blood sugar levels after an insulin shot is the risk of your sugar levels dropping to dangerous levels. The most common method to monitor your blood sugar level pre- and post-insulin is with a blood glucose meter.
