That's what my insulin vial seems to be saying.
I have still had leftover Apidra pens for backup to my pump and planned on asking the doctor for syringes when those run out. Then I started using the last one a few days ago and suspect it might be too old, so threw it out. I didn't really want to go to the doctor just for syringes, so I decided to "borrow" a couple from my cat until I get to the doctor. No, I am not going to deprive my precious lula of her cat medicine! I just used one of her syringes twice so I'd have an extra one.
But then I realized that her syringe is 1ML and you can go as low as .1 (a tenth of a ml). But isn't that still 10 Units? Too much for me! I'm pretty sure I'm understanding it right but it looks like so little! I always used pens on MDI, so the syringes must have really small lines to dose in increments of only 1 unit!
A box of 100 is more than you'd need.
Get the smallest ones they have-- I think its 3/10cc...i.e. 30 units.
They are marked in 1 unit increments.
Thanks, guys. Yes, I was astonished when I shot 10 units out of a pen into a dish to see it was barely visible!
