Is anyone in the US using the PENDIQ pen? We are currently use the Echo but need to switch to Humalog and I would like a pen that store/tracks injections.
I started a blog post on the Echo pen, if anyone is interested in following or posting, so people can stay informed about this cool new pen! http://www.tudiabetes.org/profiles/blogs/echo-pen-by-novonordisk-ha...
Hi Bryan, there isn't a smaller pen that I know of, but syringes can be fairly portable if you prefill them, especially if you only need small doses. I use a pen.
Do they make a small insulin pen? I'm moving from a pump back to MDI and was wondering if anyone makes a smaller pen for easier portability.
I sometimes notice some very slight liquid around my flex pens (novolog and Levemir. It's been happening for some time now and I'm thinking it's affecting my dosage and blood sugar levels, does any one else have this problem. The needles I use are Novofine 32G. I will be calling the manufacturers today.
The recommendation for the Levemir pen is to hold the button down for a count of about 7 then keep the needle in for about another 10 or so. I do a total count of 30 and still have a drop on the needle when I pull it out.
I don't pinch I just stab it straight in and hold for a 10 count and that's it! :)
Most the time, I get a little dribble. Hasn't caused any problems for me, just kinda used to it.
