EDITOR'S COMMENT

I'm one of the older generation who can

remember being chased around a room

by a parent bearing a glass syringe with

an inch-long needle on it, intent on

injecting me with insulin. I was lucky; my

mum was a nurse (and from Yorkshire;

let's just say she had a no-nonsense

approach). Things have improved

immensely since those days, with many

people with diabetes able to inject with

needles only 4mm long and which are

usually painless when used.

BD has sponsored this guide to help disseminate useful information

about what the company has learned about injection technique over

the many decades it has been engaging with diabetes patients and

their healthcare professionals.

I hope you find this as interesting as I did when researching what to

include here.
