USA Accelerates Shift To Insulin Pens From Syringes and Bottled Insulin

 

insulin pensInsulin pens are used by about 95% of the people who inject insulin to manage their diabetes throughout Europe and Asia. This was in stark contrast to the United States, where insulin pens were only used by a small percentage people.

In the last few years, however, insulin pens have rapidly grown in popularity in the USA, with 25% of those injecting insulin using pen devices. It is expected that insulin pen use here will grow to match the rate in use in other developed nations.

The rapid acceptance and preference of pen devices is because if you’re a person with diabetes who injects insulin, or a care giver, you will really appreciate how much more discrete, comfortable and user friendly insulin pens are compared to syringes and bottled insulin.

 

Insulin pens are easy and comfortable to use

  • An insulin pen is less for you to carry than syringes and bottled insulin.
  • It’s easier to use, especially if you have reduced vision or difficulty manipulating devices.
  • It’s more accurate for you to get the correct dose, particularly when you repeat doses.
  • It is more comfortable to inject because the pen needle does not get dulled when your syringe pierces the rubber septum on an insulin bottle.

Insulin pens are discrete

  • You’ll find it is much more discrete to carry and use an insulin pen than syringes and vials of insulin.
  • Insulin pens make insulin therapy more socially acceptable, and avoid the stigma of syringes.
  • You’ll feel less conspicuous carrying a pen and more comfortable using it in public compared with using a syringe.

Premixed Insulin is now readily available

  • Several pharmaceutical companies that manufacture insulin for pens now offer you a wide variety of premixed insulin in either cartridges or disposable pens.

Most insurance that covers syringes and vials now cover Insulin Pens

  • There was a time when some insurance companies only paid for syringes and vials, but today most insurance companies pay for insulin pens.
  • You need to check with your own insurance carrier to be certain they cover insulin pens.
