nsulin pen needles and

disposable syringes come in a

variety of lengths and widths.

Your healthcare team should be able

to advise what size is best for you

- we recommend using 4mm

needles and no more than 5mm.

But, remember, when it comes to

injecting, much to do with reducing

any likely pain is to get the right kit

and the right technique. Be careful

not to fall into bad habits as they

might lead to injection site

infection. So, use new needles for

each injection and don't inject

through clothing.

If you're an 'old hand' at injecting, it

might be worth a quick refresher on

'best practice' to make sure you're

doing it right. See page XX for the

steps to success.

We take you through the long and short of insulin pen needles to help you get the

right fit for your needs.

BD (Becton Dickinson) is a leading

brand in the science of needle

technology, launching the first

smallest needle at only 4mm as part

of its Micro-Fine Ultra insulin pen

needle range. The shortness helps

guarantee that insulin injections are

subcutaneous (under the skin) and

not intra-muscular. Also, the shorter

needle actually removes the need to

pinch a fold of skin - one less thing

to do to achieve a successful

injection. These also have extra thin

wall technology - the five bevels

give less resistance going through

the skin, making it the injection

more comfortable.

The 4mm needle is inserted at a 90°

angle, which is nice and simple as

well as relatively comfortable as far

as the injecting experience goes.

Easy injecting means one less thing

to go wrong with that aspect of

diabetes control. The rest of the BD

range includes BD Micro-Fine+

0.25mm (31G), TW (thin wall

technology), 5mm; BD Micro-Fine+

0.25mm (31G), TW, 8mm; BD MicroFine+

0.33mm (29G).

BD also has another range - Viva

Pen Needles - designed to improve

comfort. They come sizes 4mm

Most of these needle ranges fit on

most insulin injection pens and all

are available on prescription.

SOME OF THE BEST

BD OWEN MUMFORD

Owen Mumford's Unifine Pentips are

ultra-thin pen needles. They feature

a silicone lubricating coating which

is designed for maximum comfort -

so less pain while injecting.

The pentips fit quickly and easily to

virtually all insulin and other drug

delivery pens including Owen

Mumford's own Autopen. The tip of

each needle is triple sharpened

allowing optimal injections and

reducing the risk of pain. The range

comes in the following sizes: 4mm x

32G and 33G, 5mm x 30G and 31G,

6mm x 31G, 8mm x 31G and 12mm x

29G.

Owen Mumford has also launched

(32G), 5mm (31G), 6mm (31G) and

8mm (32G).
