Found something that may suit me :). I dont feel comfort taking injections in front of others, and it is not easy to hide. But now I read something really intresting, and I have already ordered an sample
pack. Looking forward to try it!

Some information:

A company called Insulution was founded in 2008 to market Daily Dose, the world's smallest insulin syringe. The company's founder is Patrick Martinsson who developed diabetes type 1 as a result of a serious car crash.

"The Daily Dose triple holder is waterproof and robust. It is also translucent; meaning that you can see which of the three doses has or
hasn't been taken. This reduces your risks of missing a dose because of
forgetfulness or repeating a dose by mistake."

"Daily Dose does not seek to replace other methods of insulin delivery, rather to complement those that you already have. Almost every category
of diabetic will find that Daily Dose is a great way to simplify
everyday life."


Will tell you when I get it!

I get the vibe of a good future...

Ever though about using and insulin pen? Novo Nordisk makes some nice ones.

Hello. Okay this seems to be something that I would definitely be interested in. I currently don't use prefilled pens because they are so long, I'd rather just carry my vials and syringes since they can fit along with my OneTouch mini meter in a small pouch but this would be even better. I'm looking forward to hearing your review once you have tried them out...thanks for sharing :)

Khürt - I think I need some more information? What do you mean Novo Nordisk? :) If you mean an usual insulin pen I already got one called Flexpen. Not that big but doh visible.

Novolog Flexpen is made by Novo Nordisk. I like to know the name of the company making my life saving medication. I guess I don't care to be discreet taking my shots. I have nothing to feel embarrassed or self conscious about.

Khürt - That´s a good attitude! And I guess I totally agree, but sometimes I just feel for being discret and sometimes an usual pen can feel a bit clumpsy to wear. A mini mini pen that you just could put in your pants pocket while your out on a case would be smooth ;). But of cuz we all dont feel the same :)

Yes that's what I like about it...the convenience. I see it as an additional option in how the insulin is carried/injected. From what I can tell, I would still be able to use the type of insulin/the brand prescribed. I don't have an issue with taking my mediation at all but having the ability to carry a one day supply of insulin vs. the entire vial (or pen), especially on active days like when you're on a cruise, at an amusement park, things of that nature, in my opinion...would be an awesome option :)
