Insulin pens were designed to allow patients to administer insulin to themselves in a fast, accurate, and safe manner. While there are millions of diabetic patients today who use these devices for their insulin doses, many users are not properly trained on their proper use.
In an article on the subject posted on the Check With Your Pharmacist website, the author points out that pharmacist who sell and health care providers who use insulin pens are inadequately trained in the use of these products. They also cause some confusion on patients who have to use these pens right out of the box.
The author wrote that to ensure successful insulin delivery, the user needs to have a new pen needle, alcohol pads, and an insulin pen with the prescribed insulin type. Below is an excerpt from the guide on how to use an insulin pen correctly.
